Oh just spent so much time on this to discover now that RancherOS is in end of life but Rancher is refusing to mark the Github repo as such and only alerts the users that are paying for their services:
This lack of transparency from them it’s just… I don’t know what to call it, but I am really pissed off
An active fork already exists but no idea if I should go with it or just run Debian or Alpine to run my Docker containers behind Traefik.
Yep, same here. I’ll follow your comments or posts (if you post) on the topic. Sadly I don’t have much bandwidth now but I am after the same thing. I am looking into spending ~3000 EUR for a mid-range headless Linux workstation (but will still operate it through my iMac Pro; world-class display after all! plus don’t want to buy a third set of keyboard+mouse ) and want to heavily utilize Docker/Podman and Kubernetes/Nomad on it.
For that, I really want the absolute minimal Linux for containers (though I would be overjoyed if its super-minimal size can be translated to bare-metal but it’s not my priority).
Before I dive in, how macOS-friendly are these? It might be a while before I buy a workstation – I want to be smart with my money and not skin myself before salary, you know! – so I think for a time I’ll experiment on my Mac.
