"Red Hat yesterday announced -- or rather Oracle announced on its behalf -- that the next release of Red Hat Linux will integrate support for Java support, provide a journaling file system and add the Motif GUI."

"The Oracle connection comes from the two companies' plan to promote Oracle 8i on Linux. The notoriously anti-Microsoft database giant is already pushing its product hard as a key e-commerce tool on Windows, and by working with Red Hat it can provide a solution that's entirely Windows-free."
