My question... Are they going to continue to "release" subversions? So will a CentOS 8.5 match RHEL 8.5? Or will CentOS become strictly one subversion that is a beta subversion for RHEL?
It seems that the flow will be about:
1. There is RHEL 8.x
2. RHEL staff will create packages that could go to RHEL 8.(x+1)
3. RHEL staff release those packages to CentOS Stream (8)
4. RHEL staff tweaks packages
5. RHEL 8.(x+1) is released
The Stream might have packages that go to RHEL 8.(x+1) before
8.(x+1) is released, or the packages might differ.
As for doing magic ... the release delays that we have seen with CentOS (point) releases should indicate how deep
magic does it take.
Gregory Kurtzer has announced the Rocky Linux project. Perhaps you should join his team of wizards?
I read about it this morning. My first reaction was this was a joke -- a very BAD
joke -- so I immediately came over here. I've just invested in new hardware based on Zen 3, and was
looking at making CentOS 8
the center of the new workstation. I use to use Fedora but after shedding more blood than I cared to by living on the bleeding edge, I jumped ship and migrated over CentOS, a rather ho-hum, but rock stable distro. I can live with ho-hum, so long as it is rock stable.
CentOS Stream sounds like a disaster. If RH hopes to put another layer of testing between Fedora and RHEL by going Fedora --> CentOS Stream --> RHEL, I'm afraid they are going to be sorrily disappointed. While I have used RH and its derivatives for over 20 years, it is time to get off the RH Train. While I HOPE that Red Hat is going to see the Error of its ways and will issue a very FAST reversal of this ill conceived plan, because of people fleeing in record numbers of anything that smacks of "Red Hat", I seriously doubt that will happen. So....
Any suggestions for a ROCK STABLE non-rolling release OS? Instead of kicking the tires of CentOS 8.3
, if and when it comes out, I'm going to start kicking the tires of a whole lot of other OS's IMMEDIATELY that could possibly REPLACE CentOS 8.x.
Please list below any alternatives
you might recommend. Rats fleeing a sinking ship. To say that this SUCKS
is an understatement.
