ORACLE Launches Linux Distribution 8.10

Oracle has released the latest version of its Oracle Linux operating system, offering a distribution that is compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). The Oracle Linux distribution includes a core based on the Linux 5.15 kernel, optimized for industrial software and Oracle equipment. Users also have the option to use the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel 7 Update 2 core, which provides advanced capabilities like DTRACE integration and improved BTRFS support.

The Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel is positioned as an alternative to the RHEL Nuclear Packet, with the initial text of the kernel available in the public git repository for easy access. Oracle Linux users can choose between the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel and the RHEL kernel based on their specific requirements.

Oracle’s release of Oracle Linux 8.10 brings a list of changes and updates that align it with Red Hat’s latest release, RHEL 8.10. Both operating systems now offer similar features and enhancements, providing users with a seamless experience across platforms.
