Better IBM than Oracle. IBM had Linux in their attention for a long
time and it was usually a good cooperation, with a high-performance
servers running Linux and IBM software. And some of their software has
compatibility back to 1960s, it's good that it can be run in a modern
Linux architecture. This is an advantage for existing IBM users, so I
think they will not try to shut down open alternatives in databases and
management, at least when the "compatibility buffer" is enough.

And RHEL devs will probably not wear oversleeves like these old-timer
accountants IBM is traditionally associated with :).
