Let’s drop the misleading info and terminology in “TrueOS becoming a core OS”
Firstly, let’s get the names and terms in order and not panic!
Will have Cool&Fresh OS
What is a core OS - my OS your OS or any OS ???
CoreOS coreos.com is a project based on the core of Linux OS.
CoreOS is just the name of a project based on the core of Linux OS, like Android, Slackware, RH, SUSE, etc.
TCP/IP is a network that was named and is known as Internet. Internet data communication utilizes TCP/IP as its core network protocol with servers, services and applications which use various names: http, smtp, nntp, ntp, etc. So, you don’t want to call http Internet.
Even today many Internet users think that Facebook is Internet, just like back in the olden days, users of AOL/BBS thought that AOL was Internet, before AOL connected to TCP/IP network, because they had an email and chat on AOL/BBS - lol
TrueOS will change name to Trident, and that is it. Trident will still be driven by the core of FreeBSD OS
Tho, I like, prefer and will miss the TrueOS name. It was unique and original name of the OS and most search engines new where its Internet presence was at
The project-trident will focus on work related to core of FreeBSD, customized for the Trident distribution.
Trident project aims (I think) to provide new and/or updated system scripts, utilities and application such as system install, OpenRC and whatever the devs of Trident will come-up with to improved things in FreeBSD core that will work better in Trident.
Correct me, if I’m wrong.
