I’m not a huge RHEL/CentOS fan, but I do think it’s a pretty negative blow to the Linux OSS ecosystem

theres CentOS Stream which is RHEL beta/RHEL dev, but I don’t think it fulfills the same niche that CentOS did, which was basically unlicensed version of RHEL

CENTOS Linux is Dead: A warning to the KeyCloak community

Red Hat surprised the open source world with its announcment that it is pulling the plug on CENTOS. But should anyone be surprised? At the end of the day, why does it make sense to offer a product that undermines your business model? On the one hand, you have a huge investment in Red Hat Enterprise Linux that generates a ton of revenue. On the other hand, you have an underfunded effort working on an

Newest drop in my company’s fledgling OSS journey: A template/example repo for helm charts that automatically uploads the packages to GitHub Releases and publishes index.yaml to GitHub Pages. The goal is to make it almost effortless to self-publish custom helm charts.

macOS … I want a better email client for exchange that ideally simplifies reducing noise. I personally don’t like using outlook for mac.

Any recommendations? I have to connect to exchange via VPN so office 365 focused integrations won’t work at this time. Ideally a beautiful UI with easier workflow locally on macOS.

Spark is my go to. I’m a fan and I’d bet you can turn the knobs / dials to reduce noise.

I’m using spike somewhat. I tried spark in the past but wouldn’t work with exchange I think without paying last time and was subscription based. Will recheck it out
