Available as open source, Oracle Linux is fully compatible—both source and binary—with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. An independent, third-party white paper from the Edison Group, Oracle Linux: True Enterprise-Quality Linux Support includes laboratory test results which further demonstrate this compatibility. Oracle Linux is certified for compliance with the Linux Standard Base (LSB) standard, which reduces the differences between individual Linux distributions and greatly reduces the costs involved with porting applications to different distributions, as well as lowers the cost and effort involved in after-market support of those applications.
