Oracle Linux 7 Makes Its Debut

Oracle’s launch today of Linux 7 provides users with a freely available enterprise-grade Linux distribution. Oracle Linux 7 is based on the recent Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL) distribution released June 10.

As Oracle Linux 7 is based on RHEL 7, it inherits many of the same new features, though Oracle is not simply cloning RHEL and putting the company’s name on it.
