    I think I should have made this more clear. I meant my death. CentOS is getting released every 5 years.

    Recently Scientific Linux was discontinued, and they announce that - the development team will move to CentOS - so even if IBM do not have interest, we will have maintainers.

    I never use CentOS for my Desktop ( prefer Fedora ), but for server usage I think this is the best choice for me.

    EPEL 8 is aiming for completion by RHEL 8.1 (for those who don’t like clicking links). As for RPMFusion and ElRepo, they have to wait for EPEL to finish but they’ll probably work concurrently with the development. I’d guess it’d be accurate to say RHEL 8.2 will be fully functional with the community (if not shortly after 8.1).

    Which, incidentally, is when people typically upgrade to the next RHEL version if they’re “early” adopters.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    AFAIK there's not an equivalent of CentOS in the SuSE world (ie: an almost 100% compatible rebuild).

    I agree Leap isn't as close to SLES as CentOS is to RHEL. My take on the openSUSE variants:

    Fedora -> Tumbleweed (also a rolling release model)
    CentOS -> Leap (SLE core, rebuilt from [mostly] the same source. Includes extra packages not in SLES, a bit like EPEL)
    RHEL -> SLES

    Those of us who want to give 8 a try on the desktop also have to wait for EPEL and third party repos for multimedia stuff and other desktop applications. EPEL is expecting for October but I don't have any infos for RPMfusion and the like.

    SLES likely benefits from Leap being release before hand, helping it to get more testing.
