Is CentOS reasonable coverage for the Red Hat side?  What versions do we need?

Is Scientific Linux enough different that it's worth running it too?  If so, 
what versions?

Is openSUSE reasonable coverage for SUSE?  If so, what versions do we need?

Is there a free version of Oracle?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
