Ya, but apt-cache apt-get... ugh.  And the "read the notes every time
you update".  And daemons named the wrong thing.  And directories named
wrong and in the wrong place.  And...

There's lots to be said for using the distro I've used for 24 years!  I
know where everything is (ex the systemd debacle).  ;-)

Since, as Adam said, Oracle and Amazon can't just say "oh well, we
don't have a distro now", I think we should see what the "big guys"
say.  Actually, I think it'll be even more interesting to see what the
little guys (Rocky et al) say.  When people hear from them, plz post
here.  Summer just heated up!
