Rocky Linux 放出 RC1 了

Red Hat 實質上廢掉 CentOS 後,原來 CentOS 的人決定要再 fork 一次,弄了 Rocky Linux,前幾天放出 RC1 了:「Rocky Linux 8.3 RC1 Available Now」。

還沒下載下來測試,但我猜應該跟當初的 CentOS 差不多...

文章裡面提到的贊助商不少大公司,包括 AWS 也在列表內,好像可以理解為什麼...

另外翻到「Public active mirrors」這頁,看到 Fastly 居然有贊助頻寬,看起來也不需要擔心頻寬問題了。

等晚點再進去看看情況... 話說回來,官網上對 Rocky Linux 的介紹真是隱晦,完全不提到 Red Hat 看起來是避免被告 (以及被搞):

Rocky Linux is a community enterprise operating system designed to be 100% bug-for-bug compatible with America's top enterprise Linux distribution now that its downstream partner has shifted direction. It is under intensive development by the community. Rocky Linux is led by Gregory Kurtzer, founder of the CentOS project. Release Candidate 1 is now available for testing.
