Red Hat Enterprise clone poised to 'die' ? The Register
Draw your own view but my opinion is that CentOS as a name will benefit from this public power and ownership struggle.
Reminds me of Pat from Slackware, when he disappeared, only to find out he was very ill.
The community stepped in and took the project over, and to this day still stick to the ethos and drive of the original project.
Much easier and simpler alternative - just use Ubuntu
hmmm, xenserver is CentOS under the hood.
some-one will take the reins.
It won't be the end of the project, just the end of how we refer to it. The remaining maintainers will just fork away, which in practice means nothing changes except that they actually have money.
Slashdot Linux Story | CentOS Administrator ReappearsThe CentOS Development team had a routine meeting today with Lance Davis in attendance. During the meeting a majority of issues were resolved immediately and a working agreement was reached with deadlines for remaining unresolved issues. There should be no impact to any CentOS users going forward. The CentOS project is now in control of the CentOS.org and CentOS.info domains and owns all trademarks, materials, and artwork in the CentOS distributions. We look forward to working with Lance to quickly complete all the agreed upon issues. More information will follow soon."
