    No, Red Hat didn't want to completely block RHEL clones, they wanted them to provide more value and put more work than simply download RHEL sources, build it and call it a day. It seems that it was also more directed towards paid clones who basically made money on Red Hat work. What Alma does is exactly what Red Hat wanted.

    The vendor isn't supporting fixes in the firmware anymore or the software so if something does go wrong, the vendor will say 'its not supported' and let you keep the broken parts.

    So basically this quote from from Alma is pure bull spit.
    I've told you before that alma stopped being a bug for bug compatible rebuild of RHEL. This is old news. Get over it.

    From the interactions I have seen, the Red Hat folks quite like the Alma folks. They even have productive discussions and the Alma folks were not the cause for changes made by Red Hat last year.

    if your view is that disabling support for working devices used by the community is a good thing, I have absolutely no sympathy for your position.
    Technically speaking it's not wrong. I don't know the details but there *are* situations in which supporting additional hardware would require a different kernel config (not just extra kmods). No idea if that's the case here but hypothetically, if yes, then 100% compatibility with RHEL would fast become rather theoretical.
