A couple of months ago, it was reported that Cyanogen Inc. was undergoing layoffs and that they would be focusing their efforts on apps instead of development on CyanogenMod/Cyanogen OS.

This means that if you’re not a fan of OxygenOS, this could be a good alternative.
The other day it was reported that according to the rumors, Cyanogen Inc. was undergoing some massive layoffs. It should be noted that Cyanogen Inc. and the work it does for OEMs is separate from CyanogenMod which is largely supported by the Android community, but it seems that there might have been some confusion over the differences of both companies.
