I would expect Oracle to run on Fedora, CentOS, and Suse without much trouble... but typically, SUPPORTED versions are not freely available in an installation form, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Suse Enterprise Linux.

The recomended linux version acording to oracle is unbreakable linux, this is the linux distribution from oracle.
Oracle will also run smoothly on most enterprise linux distributions like redhat and suse linux enterprise server.
The one thing these distributions have in common is that they are NOT free.
the apropriate websites where you can buy them and also buy support
suse :
redhat :
oracle :

It is very likely that you can get oracle to run on ubuntu, opensuse, fedora or another distro
there is no official support for oracle on these free distributions, although you could get some support in forums
