Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to RedHat to BUY GreatBridge (postgreSQL) ???

Posted by Janine Ohmer on
I don't think their "Enterprise" version (of 6.2, I believe), which
was tuned for Oracle, was available for free download.  I'm not
positive, but that was my impression at the time.

This does seem to be an extraordinarily stupid thing for RedHat
to be doing.  Not only are they (apparently) trying to pretend that
Postgres is their proprietary database, but they have officially
distanced themselves from Oracle, allowing Suse to become the
certified Linux platform for 9i.  Although I can fully understand not
wanting to have to deal with Larry Ellison :), this strikes me as A
Bad Idea if they want to be taken seriously by Corporate America.
