Well, I agree, but surely Oracle could potentially have *more* control over something based on OpenSolaris than something based on Linux? It might negatively affect their relationship with IBM, but would otherwise possibly help given how much of Oracle's existing user base happily running on Solaris, and helping tune to maximise Oracle performance is something that Sun will likely jump through hoops to achieve anyway.
