Every other year or so I come up with a list of tools/technologies I will focus on for the next few years. Right now I'm in the proces of considering RHEL9 as a desktop (as I work for a client which is heavily invested in RHEL), but I might need to thinks about my shoppinglist/selection criteria for a moment too.
So Linux is great from a open technology side of things, but there are other things te consider. I would rather nog rely on an open solution that depends heavily on certain parts of the world for funding and support. So I will work on my list.
A newcomer for me on the list of distros to consider is EuroLinux. It is a Polish operated company providing clones of RHEL 6-9 that I found on Distrowatch.com this morning. So that could be interesting.
- support commercial tools like VMWare workstation and Intellij IDEA
- support a very broad range of hardware and peripherals
- be backed by European based support and funding
- provide modern desktop and access to recent versions of applications
I think I will take Eurolinux for a spin and see how it compares to Zorin OS.
