Linux 12-May 2nd Wed 7:00 PM   Will meet on Zoom Bill Chriss plans to demonstrate Rocky Linux beta, one of the successors to CentOS. As explained on the Rocky Linux website — https://rockylinux.org/ — "Rocky Linux is a community enterprise operating system designed to be 100% bug-for-bug compatible with America's top enterprise Linux distribution [Red Hat Enterprise Linux] now that its downstream partner [CentOS] has shifted direction [to become a beta testing version of RHEL]. It is under intensive development by the community. Rocky Linux is led by Gregory Kurtzer, founder of the CentOS project.” There is a lot of back story here, which may be discussed in this meeting.
