There is a draft of EOL messaging being prepared on the CentOS Devel mailing list.

Holy crap!! I have even less time than I thought I had. As soon as I finish evaluating open SUSE 15.3 Leap, I do not pass GO; I do not collect $200, I go directly go directly to Rocky Linux.

OK for those of you who have a jump start on Rocky 8.4 Stable, do you know if and how KDE can be installed on Rocky? Is it going to be similar to CentOS? Is /Does Rocky support the same repos that CentOS 8 supports? I remember I had to jump through several hoops to install KDE on 8.3, but does Rocky have access to the same repos that CentOS has access to?

Thanks for the heads up Mike.

I'm happily running KDE on Alma 8.4

@desertcat:
Rocky and Alma have their own Fora. If their documentation is not clear about things like third-party repos, then it is better for you and them to ask there so that they know to improve their presentation.
