Yor Linux

My Last Post (2016-04-20)

I'm going to mothball Yor Linux.  I've backed up everything.  At the beginning of May I'm going to start cleaning up the repo's and websites.

There are three main reasons that I'm doing this.

1 - I've proved to myself (and hopefully others) that a single person can still create their own RHEL Clone. I've had a blast.  It was fun figuring out everything from infrastructure to building problem packages.  I feel that I've met all my goals that I set for myself.

2 - I looked at my user and website stats.  To say they were low would be exaggerating.  I believe I had one other user, and I've already talked to him.  My Hawaiian shirt reviews on my blog get about 1000% more visits than then entire yorlinux.org site.

3 - Bad hackers.  yorlinux.org has somehow gotten into some hacking database and gets hundreds (sometimes thousands) of hack attempts every day.  It's really juts a matter of time before something happens like what happened to Mint.  I need to either constantly keep up the security fight, or bring everything down.  I can't just leave my stuff up for others.

I want to thank everyone for their encouraging words as I've worked on Yor Linux over the years.  Like I said, I had a blast.  It was fun.  But it's time to say good bye for now.
