Celebrating the Spirit of Open Source: Supporting AlmaLinux, Rocky Linux, Suse, and Oracle

At Bubbles Software Corp, we firmly believe in the power of open-source software and the collaborative efforts that drive innovation within the tech industry. Today, we are delighted to announce our support for several initiatives that embody the true spirit of open-source values.

1. AlmaLinux: A Friendly and Hands-On Approach to Progress

We wholeheartedly support AlmaLinux in their journey towards evolving their distribution in alignment with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Their commitment to being ABI (Application Binary Interface) binary compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a commendable move. By actively contributing security fixes upstream to and Red Hat, AlmaLinux demonstrates not only their technical expertise but also their dedication to the larger open-source community. AlmaLinux's pursuit of innovation has the potential to push the boundaries of what an open-source project can achieve.

2. Rocky Linux: Preserving Compatibility and Bug Compatibility

Rocky Linux has our unwavering support for their dedication to being 1:1 bug compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This approach ensures that users will have a rock-solid proven enterprise Linux distro by staying on course to remain a clone of RHEL therefore guaranteeing to operate without encountering compatibility issues. By prioritizing bug-for-bug compatibility, Rocky Linux exhibits a strong commitment to user experience and stability. We admire their efforts to make open-source software accessible and reliable for all.

3. Suse: Upholding Choice and Investment in Open Source

A warm welcome to Suse for their decision to preserve choice in the realm of 'Enterprise Linux'. Cloning Red Hat Enterprise Linux and committing a $10 million investment showcases their belief in the strength of open source. At the same time, we commend Suse for their continued support of their own Linux distribution, Suse Linux Enterprise (SLE), and openSUSE, both of which play a vital role in the broader open-source community. Suse's actions exemplify how businesses can thrive while simultaneously nurturing the open-source ecosystem.

4. Oracle: Embracing Openness and Responsibility

We stand in agreement with Oracle's sentiment to keep Linux open and free. Their commitment to being responsible stewards of the open-source communities operating under the GPLv2 is inspiring. Oracle's approach reinforces the collaborative nature of open-source development, emphasizing the importance of giving back to the community and ensuring the long-term sustainability of open-source projects.
