In recent days, , Red hat officially announced CentOS 8 Will be in 2021 End of year support .

Although the project will continue to support CentOS 7, But as we all know, the operating system is actually dead . Although since IBM From the date of the acquisition of red hat , We're prepared for that , But when I heard the news , Still shocked .

 

review CentOS The history of development

 

CentOS(CommunityEnterprise Operating System) yes Linux One of the releases . It is from Red Hat Enterprise Linux(RHEL) Compiled from the source code released according to the open source rules .2014 year ,CentOS Announce cooperation with red hat , but CentOS Will continue to operate under the new committee , Do not accept RHEL Influence .

Red hat is the world's largest open source company .RHEL Ecosystem development is very mature , Usually CentOS Will be more RHEL A few months later ,CentOS And RHEL From exactly the same source code , but CentOS Does not include closed source software .CentOS Yes RHEL The change was made to remove trademarks that could not be used freely . in other words ,CentOS Namely “ Free version ” RHEL.

CentOS The project was originally a community project , however 2014 year , Red hat acquired CentOS   after , Its position is a little awkward .

Red hat has three major Linux Distribution product line : One is Fedora, As a pilot version , We will experiment with various new Linux Functions and features , When it's stable and mature , Then introduce these features into RHEL; The other is red riding hood Linux , namely RHEL, Its main company is red hat Linux Distribution version , relatively speaking , More conservative in terms of features and new software package additions and updates ; The last is  CentOS, Namely RHEL Free and open source builds of , But in   CentOS After being taken into the arms of Red Riding Hood , It's just an act RHEL One of the “ free ” Version release , It seems that the positioning of red hat company has been very vague .

CentOS After the merger with red cap , Have been following steadily for years RHEL Release , And got the support of red hat official resources .

However ,2020 year 12 month 8 Japan , Red hat officially announced a substantial cut on the current CentOS 8 Time to support . meanwhile ,CentOS 6 Will be in 2020 year 11 month 30 Day termination ,CentOS 8 Then to  2021 year 12 month 31 End of day ,CentOS 7 Will continue until 2024 year . Many organizations have decided to start with CentOS 6 Upgrade directly to 8, Because it will take a long time to upgrade the platform , But now they have to rethink their long-term plans .

CentOS Stream With the new red hat version control

 

last year ,CentOS The team announced a new rolling release in collaboration with red hat Linux:CentOS Stream, It's positioned between Fedora Linux and RHEL Between . Now , Red cap announced CentOS 8 It's coming to an end , Unless there's another major reorientation of red hat , Otherwise, there will be no more CentOS 9 了 . but CentOS 7 Will continue until 2024 year 6 month 30 Japan , that CentOS This name can only appear in CentOS Stream It's in . Expect to 2025 year , Red hat's publishing system is roughly as follows :

For those currently in use CentOS For users of , Lose “ free ” Of RHEL, Then only consider buying RHEL Business subscription , Or look for something else Linux It's released .

Of course , stay CentOS Linux 8 At the end , You can consider moving to CentOS Stream 8, It's going to be like traditional CentOS Linux The version is updated regularly . however , Bear in mind , It's an act of RHEL The rolling release of midstream , It is not recommended to use in a production environment .

 

Red hat's next strategy

 

As part of the announcement ,RHEL Indicates that it is willing to modify RHEL To help CentOS Community , And it's possible to take amazing strategies , That is to say RHEL Beyond the existing developer license , Add new non subscription form of Authorization .

Red hat said :“ We are targeting different types of CentOS user , And CentOS Project Management Committee cooperation , Release programs that meet the needs of different user groups . We plan to 2021 In the first half of , Launch low-cost or no cost programs , Including various open source projects 、 Communities and Red Hat Companies Linux Developers subscribe to , To better meet the needs of system administrators .”

This can bring great benefits to red hat . A lot of people will think about CentOS 8 to turn to RHEL Business subscription , It will greatly increase RHEL Use . Whether it's from intellectual property 、 Licensing is still from a business point of view , Red hat's move will benefit a lot . However ,CentOS The retirement will undoubtedly lead to chaos , Red Riding Hood needs to show the way forward .
