CENTOS Latest announcement

Recently Centos announced that they aren’t continuing with Centos as it is and are instead going to use it as a “Test” bed for Redhat Enterprise

Many moons ago Fedora core was the “Bleeding edge test bed” for Redhat …. I think this is a bad decision but means I get to learn ubuntu/debian

I’ve not used Centos linux for a long time… I still love it and all its RPM goodness

Some of my favourite packages are

Epel-release ….. contains loads of extra packages (like nagios and for certain versions of centos filezilla ftp client)

Covid 19 rambling

since march 2020 how the world has changed

countries have locked people in, they have also locked people out

the world is a changed place…. i think some of the changes will be for the better, like remote working, Skype GP appointments and many more things

Everyone is suspicious of everyone….. do they look like they have covid or not?…. maybe they do, maybe they don’t

In years to come our children will be studying this worldwide pandemic in school… I wonder what they will learn?

I wonder what other countries education systems will teach their children about this time?
