Cloud Linux announces open-sourced & community-driven RHEL Fork

Hi,

CentOS is a fork of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and undoubtedly a popular choice to deploy on production servers because of its rock-solid stability and compatibility. But, now with CentOS Stream, Red Hat just killed CentOS as we know it. And as expected, people started to fork Red Hat to give a viable community-based alternative to RHEL.

CloudLinux plan to release a free, open-sourced, community-driven, 1:1 binary compatible fork of RHEL® 8 (and future releases) in the Q1 of 2021. They will create a separate, totally free OS that is fully binary compatible with RHEL® 8 (and future versions). They also sponsor the development & maintenance of such OS. CloudLinux will work on establishing a community around the OS, with the governing board from members of the community.
