This is a shock and very upsetting for those who depend on CentOS in their prod environments. Glad I didn't base my infrastructure on CentOS 8!

@skoobasteeve not sure how I feel about this yet...

"Facebook continues to drive internal innovation on CentOS Stream, the company has recognized the value in collaborating within the Red Hat ecosystem to further push their platform’s capabilities."

And feeling less good by the minute.

@skoobasteeve Yeah, much of the visual effects industry relies on CentOS. They have so many pipeline dependencies that swapping to a new version can take massive amounts of testing and code updates. Somewhere there is an admin quietly sobbing. I guess they could stump for RHEL licenses thou. Or perhaps that's the point.
