    Having been part of the RHEL 8.0 Beta, I'm excited to get CentOS 8.0 up and running in my HomeLab. For those interested in what's changed: https://access.redhat.com/documentat...se_notes/index.

      Pretty sure Red Hat will be releasing RHEL 8 @ Summit 2019. It's been in beta long enough, and my sources say it's ready to ship now, but it's so close to Summit time they're saving the big announcement for the event. Makes sense to me. Looking forward to it, we have 100+ RHEL servers at work that will need upgrading soon.

              That is not totally not true. In some cases, over down without question. If it wasn't for the stupid telemetry, by default on online crap in Windows 10, it would be by far the best Windows ever. Yeah, not Posix or Unix like, but is darn good otherwise.

                The best Windows ever... means that it is still a far way off from actually being good

                But nope, because of the telemetry and other junk, Windows NT 3.51 remains the best.

                Why Windows 3.51? Because whilst waiting for the PowerPC port, the Windows team ended up bug-fixing it for almost a year; making it pretty damn well tested and stable!

                Yes, it may not have a modern C or C++ compiler available to it... but there is no reason why one couldn't be developed

                    You meant Windows 7.

                    Wow, bug-fixing for a year. What about Win7 that got basically put in bug and security patch only and remained like that for nearly a decade.
