Is "Container Linux", "Red Hat CoreOS" and "Fedora CoreOS" basically the same? What are the differences in between?
I understood that "CoreOS" was renamed to "Container Linux by CoreOS". And then "Container Linux" and CoreOS' developers were acquired by Red Hat.
But I'm confused between "Container Linux", "Red Hat CoreOS" and "Fedora CoreOS".
First, they announced that
"Container Linux" will be reborn as "Red Hat CoreOS", which I thought the name will be "Red Hat CoreOS".
But, then, they announced to launch "Fedora CoreOS" and they
intend to maintain Container Linux at least into 2020.
So, currently, there are 3 types of "CoreOS" I think. The original "Container Linux", and "RedHat CoreOS" and "Fedora CoreOS".
I don't understand well what the ECO system of Red Hat they say are.
Is "Use it free with NO support" and "Fare-paying services with professional support"? Such like CentOS vs Red Hat Enterprise Linux?
If so, are the below right understanding? or am I fundamentally miss understanding?
- Container Linux
- For general users. Free of charge but no professional support. Soon'll be deprecating.
- RedHat CoreOS
- For corporate users. Charged for support and etc.
- Fedora CoreOS
- For general users. Post Container Linux. Free of charge but no professional support.
