This just feels a little like more IBM bait and switch to me.

CentOS/RHEL parity worked so well for so long and RH Support and Professional Services stood on their own merit.

I still feel like they just threw all that perceived faith, benevolence and trust right out the window.

Teams I’d worked on used RHEL in production all over the place, because we knew we didn’t have lock in and would employ their professional services through out the SDLC and infrastructure lifecycles.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
