Welcome to a New Year!,
We are excited to reiterate that there will be both ClearOS Server Major and Minor updates as more understanding of IBM's future of Red Hat is determined and better understood. That said we had many discussions (both internally and externally) around the future direction for ClearOS Server with many development teams and organizations.
Know the current ClearOS Server builds and updates are still viable and future ClearOS Server builds will have a future, it may not be as deep as prior ClearOS Server Major Releases and Minor Releases, however, ClearOS Server, is definitely a key part of the decentralized Digital Worlds future strategy (imaged) and squarely on the future Clear Companies Road Maps as many of the Clear Companies are some of the First Service Providers to the new decentralized Digital World.
ClearOS Mobile will help securely connect (via ClearLIFE Decentralization - cryptographically (12 words)) to ClearOS Server nodes around the world.
Thank you for continuing to support others as they utilize ClearOS Server over the years!
The future is bright. United, we can do anything!

Thanks for the update Michael. It reassuring to hear that you all plan to keep ClearOS active. There are so many outdates pages on the www.clearos.com site, it gives the appearance the project has been abandoned. It may be worthwhile to remove the outdated content and lighten the site up. Make it a smaller, simpler site to manage. Thanks again.
Is ClearOS still under active development? The Clear brand has changed quite a bit over the 15+ years I've used their software (ClarkConnect, then ClearOS.) The website and forums seem to be dwilding. Is ClearOS still a viable option for long-term personal and professional deployments?
Looks like we've made some progress.
I haven't passed any real traffic through it, but it's working.
Gonna stress it a bit to be sure it's stable then gonna reload it and put it in production.
I'll post back here as I make progress.
I chose this board as a COVID tinkering project.
It's got everything I was looking for.
Inexpensive, compact, quiet, runs pretty cool, dual NIC, NVMe, SATA, up to 32gb DDR4, x86 SBC.
And... I learned a little bit thanks to you guys
Gonna replace my old COS gateway / minecraft server.
Only down side so far is the 3 LEDs are extremely bright... so, not ideal in a bedroom... as my wife has pointed out.
Gonna have to get creative with the electrical tape to fix those LEDs.
Can't thank you guys enough.
Really appreciate the help on this.
So, does that mean that in 2+ weeks the kernel that includes this driver will be available in ClearOS?
If so, are there particular repos I'd need to enable to install this kernel?
Well, in ClearOS what made me think it compiled correctly is because it didn't give any errors that I saw when I followed these instructions:
But, it didn't work... and what REALLY made me think it was working is my ignorance
But, in Fedora 32, it complied just fine. I'm actually posting here from this machine.
I'm going to use this machine as my workstation for a while to be sure things are working ok, then I'll reach out to the people at elrepo and see what happens.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Compiled just fine in Fedora 32 and working great.
Being this is just a board for me to tinker with, I'm going to dig into the elrepo kernel.
And, I'm going to create an RFE.
It's a neat little inexpensive board that would be great for this application.
