April 01, 2022Rocky Linux Project shifts focus to Rocky GNU/Hurd

Rocky GNU/Hurd Logo

The future of the Rocky Linux Project is Rocky GNU/Hurd, and over the next year we’ll be shifting focus from Rocky Linux, the rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), to Rocky GNU/Hurd, which tracks just ahead of stability. Rocky Linux 8, as a rebuild of RHEL 8, will end at the end of 2029. Rocky GNU/Hurd continues after that date, serving as a silly April Fool’s Day joke.

We have an FAQ to help with your information and planning needs, as you figure out how this shift of project focus might affect you.
