Oracle respins Red Hat (sort of)...

I just searched the BLU archives and didn't spot any threads on the
Oracle announcement.  I am curious to here what opinions you folks have.

What motivated Larry E. to make such a move?
Does anyone think this is a good idea for Oracle (share holders)?  
Do you think they can succeed at delivering a long term Linux solution?

I remember when SUN made a lot of noise with their own respin of RH-v7.2
I think it was.  They were UNIX people (also owned Cobalt/Linux) and
still failed to gain traction.

Comments?  Thoughts?
