[Discuss] Shutting down Oracle hosted on Linux

I have an Oracle 11G server on a Linux (RHEL 5.9) virtual machine. It is
not a heavy production server but is used pretty consistently. Normally
when I have a scheduled shutdown normally one of our Toronto people
prefer to shut down the database. Since the Linux shutdown command
issues a kill -TERM on all processes is it really necessary to do the
Oracle shutdown prior to the Linux shutdown.

(I'm a bit gun shy because the last time I issued an Oracle shutdown the
database got corrupted, but it probably was not my fault).

I have DBA privs on the database, but our DBAs are in Toronto and they
are no longer allowed to work on servers in the US.
