A little bit of history

I’m sorry if it’s not a right question to ask at a right place.

Just wondering how the Community ENTerprise OS got bought at the first time. Didn’t it have the word “Community” in its name? Can someone share the story of the history? And will Rocky Linux follow the same old path in the future?

Read the linked source articles at CentOS - Wikipedia - that will probably tell you most of what you need to know about the history.

Will Rocky follow the same old path - probably not - if you listen to any interviews with Greg K in the past 8 months that question is asked every time. I’m not familiar enough to point you to the answer of “why not?” but I’m sure if you were to try and find it - it wouldn’t be too difficult. It is partially answered under the https://rockylinux.org/faq/

Good luck
