Re: Update default template from CentOS 5.5 to CentOS 7


Hi Daan,

Appreciate this – but we have to take the use case and audience into account. If we are to include templates like we have done in the past then the purpose for those is to give end users a starting point for free and without having to spin up their own templates. We can and should have a discussion around this – but as a starting point I would say they need to be:

- A server OS 
- License free
- Ready to host light workloads with a few install steps – MySQL, Nginx, etc.

So – in my opinion this points to either a minimal CentOS or Ubuntu server template – and my vote would be for CentOS7. Machninia is great by all means – and it helps us techies and developers out - but it’s built to be a lightweight test bench and doesn’t really give the end user value.

    sorry, if I wasn't clear Dag. I meant to say let's add macchinina. My
    preference for a heavy weight would be fedora btw, however macchinina suits
    my needs in many cases. It is very small and is not hurting anyone if we
    include it.
