CentOS is dead, long live Debian

As some of you may already know Red Hat has killed off CentOS:

^ That's their corporate bullshit site, see https://centos.rip/ for a more accurate take of the situation.

So all of the enterprise users will now be looking elsewhere for a stable distribution:

Expect an upsurge of newcomers to APT wondering how to make it work. Be nice.

And yes golinux, you did tell us so :mrgreen:

I think it's safe to say that Debian has a better track record :mrgreen:
