Submission + - Rumors of an Oracle-RedHat merger (

calmond writes: "According to an E-week article, Oracle might be looking to acquire RedHat. This week, a report surfaced that claimed an Oracle-Red Hat merger might "[make] sense." Even as the note cautioned that the acquisition wouldn't happen "now," other reports have Oracle and Hewlett-Packard recently in unsuccessful talks to snatch up Sun Microsystems.

Oracle might be gearing up for another highly public acquisition, and this time the IT giant may have its eyes set on open-source innovator Red Hat. This week, an analyst suggested that an Oracle acquisition of Red Hat is "eventually highly likely."

Although Oracle and Red Hat are not speaking about these reports, it generated enough buzz to warrant stories and additional speculation."
