    Sweet thanks for heads up - more fun on the way when CentOS 7.5 comes.

    Redhat Enterprise 7.5 Release notes - https://access.redhat.com/documenta...e_linux/7/html-single/7.5_release_notes/index

    nice more platform support
    Kernel parameters for AMD EPYC and Meltdown/Spectre
    bye bye 3DES
    oooh binutils rebased to 2.2.7 - too much to hope for for rebase of glibc to 2.27 I guess heh
    as has rsync
    retpolines for GCC compiler
    nice
    rpm-build improvements !

    Yup indeed i do. Looks like Redhat 8.0 will ditch python 2.7 too for python 3.x defaults ! Long way off till Redhat 8.0 though.

    I suspect an Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 release within a year.

    Given the fact that "Full Support" for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, will end next year.

    As can be reviewed at the "Life-cycle Dates" paragraph on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life Cycle - Red Hat Customer Portal

    Time flies when you're having fun.

    Got cages full of mission critical systems that are still on
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (ELS) :)

    New is not always desirable. Every situation requires its own approach.

    Not a sys admin, non programmer and of course no help desk but with Extended Life Cycle Support it is rock solid. Can recommend it to all.

    @eva2000 never change a winning team!
    Mission critical is not a testing ground :)

    Of course, test server + production backup, sprinkled with the love of Australia > after some months is production. :)

    Not every customized solution can be migrated from the old host OS to another new OS.
