But, in database world, Oracle still better than Mysql.
And, in OS world, Windows are better than Linux
On the same hardware Windows out perform Linux, and if you use Java and Database, OS really does not matter, Linux need too much work to install and patch, Linux kernel has lots of bugs then can not run Oracle, Mysql reliably
Linux simply has too many versions ...
I like Oracle J developer very much, it has great object relational mapping tools.
There is no good reason. Free things are better.

Tomcat and Jboss support newest J2ee spec, while Weblogic, Webspere are one version old.
I do not see any point to use Weblogic or Webspere's extension
Is J2ee not enough for you ???
CMP EJB makes no sense, unless you have tools like Oracle Toplink to generate Bean with Value object code for you and you just use
Performance wise, CMP EJB is ok.
Weblogic, Webspere still sells since big company are afraid of open source, the purchase decision are made by layers and manager who do not know much about techology.
Re: Why should anybody use high-priced EJB servers when the same can be achieved with Tomcat,struts and Hibernate?

CMP is easier to sell to technophobic bosses, or generally in a situation where you want known solutions instead of the better up-and-coming solutions. Finding people who know CMP might be easier too.
I agree from a technical standpoint that Hibernate will replace CMP.
