Oracle Enterprise Linux available

In his Oracle OpenWorld keynote on October 25th, Larry Ellison announced Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support Program, a support program that provides enterprises with industry-leading, global support for Linux.
Oracle has been talking about even having its own Linux since quite a while now.
I had asked Tom Kyte about Oracle's ambitions in becoming kind of an OS itself and he said that it could definitely happen in the near future because it would make sense definitely very much.
Please see also unbreacable linux @ OTN
and Sergio Leunissen's Oracle Blog on Oracle's Linux project.
He is a member of Oracle's Linux Team.

It is already possible to download ISOs for Oracle's enterprise linux!
