Couple of years back I started my Docker journey with CoreOS. While it made me go through a lot of painful transitions, because features of traditional OSes were missing (like no package manager, everything done with systemd config additions or containers) I got used to it and it runs very stable. The roling release system let me never have to think about painful reinstall due to major OS upgrades again. But not CoreOS is reaching the end of its journey.
With the sunset of CoreOS on the horizon, once Fedora CoreOS is out, I’m not sure where to go next. Migrate to Fedora CoreOS or go back to a classical OS.
I’m using it on a single host as my private server, for everything from web hosting, email server to vpn. Is that maybe something that a much simpler CentOS approach might also fullfil?
What the community take on this? Is CoreOS and it’s coming offspring viable for private, single node usage?
