    You should be comparing it to RHEL, not to Centos.
    Maybe Oracle is evil. Their linux is not.

    I'm comparing to RHEL:
    OL has better kernel, faster bugfixes and a lot of nice yum repos.
    And best:
    You don't like it or Oracle changes something? In a blink of an eye an experienced admin has changed your OL install to CentOS.

    Why? I'm comparing solutions that have free updates without commercial support. And having the same requirements Oracle Linux outperforms CentOS in speed-to-release-updates and availability of newer kernels via UEK is also very appealing.

    I don't understand all the hate to Oracle Linux. It's a better spin of RHEL than CentOS:

    • UEK provides a lot more recent kernel
    • A lot of nice Oracle yum repos

    It's only advantages over CentOS, without any disadvantage
