Yes, it's free download but also free to re-distribute including copyrights and trademarks, see the EULA for more details.

And theres now a public yum server for OEL that offers a free and convenient way to install packages from the Enterprise Linux and Oracle VM installation media via a yum client.

MEMSET does ruby

Not by default BUT because MEMSET use CentOS and therefore yum you can just login as root to your MEMSET VM and run:

$ yum install ruby

$ ruby –version

ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [i386-linux]

So far MEMSET is turning out to be the most flexible VPS VM webhosting solution I've ever seen !
