Re: Installed CentOs 8 on top of windows 10

I don't want to discourage a Linux beginner, but perhaps CentOS is not the best operating system for daily desktop use. Not for a beginner.

There are no package management helpers in 8.x as of yet. Best to learn dnf/yum.

Re: Newbie CentOS user looking for working CentOS version

Re: What means CentOs.1908, CentOs.1905 ??

That's fine, I'm bad in everything else.

YY=YearYear=(20)19, (20)20, (21)21......last two digits in this century.
MM=MonthMonth=01, 02, 03..10, 11, 12. Or January through December, two-digit, incrementally numbered.

Abreviations such as mM, yY. etc., are different.
