I've been waiting for awhile for CentOS 8 Stream to get firefox 78.6.1 until today, when I just switched my desktop to Ubuntu 20.04.

That version is important because Firefox 78.6.1 is the ESR release that fixes the critical SCTP (yeah, I heard the joke) bug in 78.6.0. So I get the feeling that anything downstream of redhat itself may start getting the short shrift, but we won't know until the CentOS crowd migrates over.

At this rate, when my CentOS 7 servers get EOL, they'll get switched over to Ubuntu as well.

Or maybe I should just start installing SUSE as an excuse to learn German.

lol using centos for a desktop

whatís really needed is GPLv2 for cloud, e.g. ďif you make changes to this and use it in a cloud service, you have to share your changes to itĒ instead of ďyou have to give away ever last bit of intellectual property within a mile of this codeĒ

Iíve got a couple vms running centos 8 for effectively toy websites and Iím looking to switch away after ibm decided to gently caress everything up. Iím on digitalocean so my options appear to be:
1) Debian. This has a lot of issues thanks to dumb patches from idiots
2) FreeBSD: this is a dead platform

Since this is just hobbyist bullshit I was thinking of going with FreeBSD but moving these servers is going to be a pain anyway Iíd rather get something with a proper support lifecycle (i.e. why I picked centos in the first place). Is there a better recommendation? I canít stay on centos and the alternatives suck. Thanks IBM

just keep using centos stream i don't imagine for a toy website it'll be significantly different

btrfs is fine and of course you should turn off CoW when using it with a db or large vms

maybe fsync should be fixed instead

every distro using a different fuckin network config system though, and changing it every couple major versions? that can gently caress off forever.
