Oracle inside OpenStack, what's not to like?
Oracle has a poor reputation with open source developers, one that's richly deserved. If it's not in its own direct interest, it doesn't contribute. Oracle does produce code effectively for the Linux kernel under Wim Coekerts,. but, when Oracle wanted to turn away from Red Hat, its customers balked, wanting to continue to use Enterprise Linux, Oracle repackaged a RHEL knock off and called it Oracle Linux, hoping to undercut Red Hat's revenue. It choked off open source independence for Solaris, hobbled the Java Development Community and ended independence for MySQL. Oracle paid the former owners for the right to do this to their products; let's not labor under any illusions. But possession of open source and participation in the community that builds out the code are two different things.
