Many are questioning the wisdom of a migration to RHEL and reviewing other options, such as non RHEL based operating systems or a different supported operating system. Amazon Linux 2, for example, has picked up a lot of clients by porting more contemporary versions of system components like Python 3.7 to their RHEL 7 based operating system. The backfire already happened. Having a solid end-date for the point releases puts a timetable on migration decisions, which is useful.
