"Oracle is to release its own Linux distribution aimed at the
Japanese business computing market. And next month it will form a
subsidiary to market and develop both the open source OS and
services based around it."
"The Miracle Linux Corporation will begin operating in early
June with 20 employees and Y620 million ($5.87 million) of Oracle
money to play with, according to the Nikkei newswire. The company
itself will be jointly owned by Oracle, NEC and TurboLinux, the
last two each owning around 14 per cent of Miracle Linux."
"TurboLinux will also supply the core OS product, which
Miracle Linux will extend to tie it more closely into Oracle's
Oracle 8i RDBMS, which it will also sell and support. Miracle
Linux will also offer training and consultancy services focusing on
its Linux distribution and the database. "
"Miracle Linux will also develop a version of its eponymous
distro that will run on Intel's Itanium processor."
