Im not sure. I thought about asking on the OSS list. I would think since
YUM is being used now it's independent of the OS and just replies on
hardware.

IDK.
What happens if it fails? Then is the problem something which needs
fixing via an OS PTF? A LIC PTF? A firmware update?
Are these YUM updates easy to back out?

I was more thinking of Node, etc... will they stop YUM from working for
updates on Power 8? :)

Hmm, maybe you want to download that distro of Linux that's supported on
your older Power system, while that version of that distro is still
available? :-)

That's great that they take perfectly capable machines and make them
almost
worthless. Shoot... my old 515 could run V7R4 I bet. I know my 41A
isn't
even touching it's capability at V7R4.

The one positive is it can at least be used for OSS... unless they break
that too.

Guess I'll be buying a new power 11 in a couple years. :)

I might be crazy but I'm sensing a pattern here:

POWER4: last supported i 6.1
POWER5: last supported i 7.1
POWER6: last supported i 7.2
POWER7: last supported i 7.3
POWER8: last supported i 7.4
- so -
POWER9: last supported might be i 7.5 Maaaaaaaybe?

I know it sounds crazy and I may be waaaaaay out on a limb here, but
if you didn't see that coming I wouldn't apply for a job as a
lookout!
