I don't understand this decision, which i guess goes along with not understanding what Assets Red Hat has. The 65% markup is also scary because the valuation is still the same, so to break even, they will need to make back that 14 or so Billion. Why purchase instead of an agreement?

I think Lunduke has the most reasonable take on what this acquisition means. As with any acquisition, there is good and there is not so good.

One of the most interesting things to contemplate in this acquisition is, what will become of Oracle Linux? It's based on RHEL and Oracle has bet heavy on their Linux, but with IBM (direct competitor) driving the direction of RHEL, where does ORacle Linux go?

Doubtful. Oracle's Solaris was such a bust I rarely see it in any datacenter any longer.

The various BSD distributions are incredibly good, but they are primarily designed as servers. FreeBSD And GhostBSD would probably be good choices to check out in a virtual machine prior to deciding where you want to land. Problem is, you don't have nearly as mych support on hardware and with various pieces of software as you get in nearly any Linux distro.
