While everybody has recently heard of the news that Microsoft bought Skype in a $8.5 billion deal, and Voice over IP telephony has gained once more some publicity, nobody knows of the several options for communication over the internet. While Skype can easily be considered as the most popular or even the most famous, there also other services that can be considered.

Ever since Oracle introduced its Unbreakable Linux support program in late 2006 there have been doubts about whether the company could continue to maintain compatibility with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Doubts have increased recently following Red Hat’s decision to cut support for Xen in favour of the KVM virtualization technologies it acquired, while Oracle remains committed to Xen. While Oracle’s CEO Larry Ellison made no mention of this issue he effectively delivered Oracle’s answer to it as he announced the launch of Oracle’s Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Oracle Linux (formerly Oracle Enterprise Linux).
Oracle has announced the availability of the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Oracle Linux, a fast, modern, reliable kernel that is optimized for Oracle software and hardware. “Today’s hardware innovations are fast and frequent, making it very important that the Linux distributions evolve quickly to leverage the latest hardware,” said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president of Linux and Virtualization Engineering at Oracle. The Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel has been developed by Oracle in relation to its Exadata and Exalogic integrated systems and is being positioned by Oracle as the recommended choice for all Oracle software.
