Hello Guys!

Read this bad news:

This is happening frequently. I think we will have to revise some things
within the project, particularly the creation of a Legacy project or a
Fedora LTS.

The brazilian government, one of the biggest Fedora Case of the world is
changing from Fedora/ Red Hat to Ubuntu/Debian.

We need to think and create a solution to give support by a long time or
the fedora user will decrease!

Frankly, that's what RHEL/CentOS are for. Taking Fedora as a long term
server solution was a mistake in their side IMO. Fedora Legacy exited
and died due to a lack of interest.

To me, this is not a change that is just "decided upon". The admins there are plenty smart and know how to mix and match CentOS, Fedora or RHEL to suit them.

This feels like a targeted "customer acquisition" by Canonical. If you read the press release, it reads like a classic "customer success story". "Gee whiz, look at how much easier it is to manage Ubuntu!"

Which is hogwash, of course. But kudos to Canonical for picking a good high-profile project to take away from us.
