I appreciate diversity in the distro ecosystem, but I’m not sure I actually understand their value proposition.
This is … a helluva story. Solus, which I admit I’ve never heard of before now, lost all access to their infrastructure and were effectively dead in the water for months.
I have heard of neither of the projects (Solus, or Serpent). I have to assume that the “community” was somehow centered around RIT. It’s quite a good school (even on national terms).
