While I prefer Linux over Windows for Oracle (purely personal preference), I think this Linux Journal webpage has the Stupid Quote of the Day Award:
The smartest move for anyone to make is to migrate from Windows to Linux.
Techno-Religious fanaticism at its best! Way to go!
What Does This Have to do With Oracle?
As I pointed out in my blog entry about Oracle revenue from Windows deployments, Larry still makes more money from Windows deployments than Linux. Yes, these are CY2005 numbers, we’ll have to see what 2006 looks like. I suspect more of the same honestly. That is, if those numbers are ever revealed.
Windows or Linux for Oracle is a choice that can only be made by each IT shop. If you are a Windows shop, you’ll choose Windows. If you are a traditional Unix shop, and want to play in the commodity space, you’ll go with Linux.
