Red Hat

With great excitement I'd like to announce that we are joining the Red Hat family. The CentOS Project is joining forces with Red Hat. Working as part of the Open Source and Standards team to foster rapid innovation beyond the platform into the next generation of emerging technologies. Working alongside the Fedora and RHEL ecosystems, we hope to further expand on the community offerings by providing a platform that is easily consumed, by other projects to promote their code while we maintain the established base.

Well, that's certainly a different tune from Red Hat. Welcome though!

Mir isn't even a thing. The problem ended up being a little more complicated than they thought, and it's going to be more complicated when they figure out they need desktops too.

Unity is a buggy resource hog in its current rendition. It is really horrible to use, although unlike many I actually like the idea of a central place to search the many sites of interest - sort of a duckduckgo on my own system. The execution is just horrible though.

I think the many renditions of Gnome 3 really prove its versatility though. Looking at Deepin and realizing that is all the same technology as Fedora is amazing.

The best thing is Red Hat and friends are finally creating a unified modern system, the entire stack is being integrated to work together, and you can't really complain because it isn't being forced on you... thanks again Ubuntu!

It is exciting times in the Linux world.
