Re: [PLUG] CentOS

Personally I try to keep a Red Hat derived system (usually CentOS) and a Debian derived system (often Ubuntu) running just to keep familiar with the care and feeding of the system.  My paid job is all Windows based but *nix skills are always useful.

My view is Redhat is ready, willing and able to hurt Linux to fill
their coffers. I'll never use Redhat, be it RHEL, Centos, CentOS
Stream, Fedora (do they still have Fedora?), or Rocky Linux. I don't
know why anybody, other than a big corporation who wants handholding
and somebody to sue, would use any Red Hat distro or recent derivative.
