CoreOS Container Linux Will No Longer Be Supported After May 26, 2020

Based on Gentoo Linux, CoreOS Linux saw the light of day more than six years ago, on October 3rd, 2013. It was well received by the community for being a lightweight operating system designed for distributing payload applications inside software containers and it gained a lot of popularity in a short time span. Now, Container Linux by CoreOS is reaching end of life, effective immediately on May 26th, 2020. After that date, it will no longer receive updates or security patches, and won’t be available to new subscribers on the AWS Marketplace. After September 1st, 2020, all published resources will be deleted as well or made read-only.
