What is Lineage OS?

Lineage OS is created by Steve Kondik and others and is a fork of CyanogenMod. If you have seen the above post where it says CyanogenMod continues to Live, is really true but not in itself. CyanogenMod has evolved in a new avatar as the Lineage OS. Eventually, developers contributing to CyanogenMod will contribute to Lineage OS. Slowly CyanogenMod will be dead by name and the Lineage OS will be popular as a custom ROM among developers and advanced users. This website is an unofficial place to get all Lineage OS ROMs for various supported devices.

More about Lineage OS:

May be the CyanogenMod and Cyanogen or Cyanogen Inc. all names belong to the investors of Cyanogen Inc and not Steve Kondik, the founder of Cyanogen Inc. and CyanogenMod. There is no name of CyanogenMod anywhere in the Lineage OS blog post where it only says:

Yes, this is us. We aren’t going anywhere.

Most of the infrastucture is not yet alive but will go live very soon. Here is the link, where you can find some more info. The post says something more will be revealed on Tuesday (which is today). Let’s see what comes out?
