The AlmaLinux team has announced the availability of the first stable version of its operating system. It is a fork of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) that arises as an alternative to CentOS. As you may remember, a few months ago Red Hat announced that it would stop supporting CentOS and, since then, several distributions have started the race to position themselves as the option of choice for users. AlmaLinux is the first to announce a version ready for production environments.
Red Hat has announced new free programs for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), its Open Source enterprise operating system. As of February 1 there will be no cost for development teams and workloads of up to 16 servers.

Red Hat Forum EMEA 2020 will be held next Tuesday, November 3. This year it will be an online session, so all IT professionals interested in the technologies of this manufacturer and in enterprise Open Source in general will be able to attend from wherever they are.
