"All Oracle's application developers develop on Linux."

"All Oracle's application developers develop on Linux. As soon as we release 10g as a production product, our database developers will move to Linux as their base development program. We 're seeing a tremendous adoption curve of Linux at Oracle, for base and development systems. That represents great news for the Linux community, when a company like Oracle starts using Linux as its development platform."
