Licensing Q&A: Is Oracle Linux free?

Oracle Linux is available in two editions – Oracle Linux Standard Edition and Oracle Linux Premier Edition. The Standard Edition of Oracle Linux is available as a free and open-source operating system, based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) distribution. It includes many of the same features and components as RHEL, including the Linux kernel, RPM package management, and many popular open-source tools and utilities.

Oracle also offers a Premier Edition of Oracle Linux, which includes additional features and support services. The Premier Edition is available through a paid subscription, which provides access to Oracle’s support services, including technical support, security updates, and access to the Oracle Linux ULN (Unbreakable Linux Network).

TLDR: Oracle Linux Standard Edition is available as a free and open-source operating system, while Oracle Linux Premier Edition is available through a paid subscription that includes additional features and support service.
