LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Poll: What are Your CentOS Plans?

As we reported last December, CentOS is changing.  Instead of being downstream of RHEL (and seeking to be a free RHEL clone), it is now moving upstream of RHEL and will be a development playground for RHEL.  That radically changes its nature.

So what are your plans regarding CentOS?  Please let us know in the poll and comments below!




How Will You Use CentOS and CentOS-Like Distros in the Future?

What are your plans for CentOS going forward?


  1. Brian:

    I am going with Ubuntu server, FreeBSD, or OpenBSD before this. CentOS is of less value to me now and via either the free for 16 licensing or their developer support, I will use it as needed to maintain professional skills, but not for much else.

    I miss a choice:

    [ ] I will continue using CentOS 7 a few years (supported until 2024) until the dust settles and then chose a way forward
