"For those relying on CentOS 8 to enjoy the reliability and features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 but without the licensing costs, etc, that will end in 2021. "
I'm testing #CentOS #Stream and it is actually quite cool. But killing of the 1:1 rebuild from #RHEL8 sources is a mistake IMHO. A big mistake - at least if #RedHat won't provide a much more open access to the original #RHEL itself.
Yes, that is what #Rocky Linux is all about!"
And - BANG - it forked. Oh how I love #FLOSS...
@jack That last part is SO on point.
"Hopefully, Rocky Linux won’t end up being acquired by another big organization and fall for 'Embrace, Extend, Extinguish' trap."
I hope history doesn't repeat itself.
@claudiom as sad it maybe it will repeat it self pretty sure Microsoft has a similar EEE missile up its sleeve just waiting...
I just can't trust a single corporate anymore
@jack I wish the term "fork" was not confused by Github. Most people think of a fork as a clone, but Github forks are children of the parent repo and keep track of changes just like a branch. Parent repo goes away, so do all forks.
