Hi LUGers,

       Well the Enterprise Linux systems and their substitutes are 
coming out.

               At Distrowatch we see the announcement of
               Distribution Release: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5 with links
             to their shop.  I think you can try it out for 30 days 
before you
              subscribe to their support service.

               You know i presume that CentOS which was compiled from 
the RH
               upstream sources is going out of business due to the IBM 
               one assumes.

               NEW • Distribution Release: AlmaLinux OS 8.5
                is one of several which are attempting to replace CentOS

And another that is for business/organization needing a switchwitch!

   2021-11-10     Distribution Release: 3CX Phone System 10

     Origin: France

Lakka is a lightweight Linux distribution that transforms a small 
computer into a
  full blown game console. The distribution is based on LibreELEC and 
runs the
RetroArch console emulator. Lakka is capable of running on a variety of 
including personal computers, Raspberry Pi boards and WeTek Play devices.

     Unless we want to go into the nonsense called Windows 11 that is
the best news I can find so far, but if you try to run that on a system
not set up for it, it will tell you to reinstall Windows 10. Perversity!
