    That's true. It's also great that Flatpak has seemed to promoted an app ecosystem for GNOME.

        Using Centos on any newish hardware (and i'm not talking about these new zens only) is asking for troubles.

          RHEL doesn't support the desktop chips yet, but it does support the EPYC chips which are definitely a priority for datacenter oriented distributions.

            Has Centos dropped support for desktops other than Gnome? There is no KDE ISO and not a single KDE package available. Are they coming or is Gnome the only DE going forward?

              As CentOS directly rebuilds RHEL, which does only support GNOME, the answer is yes. However, you are likely to see the other DEs popping up soon in EPEL, there has been work on that front, but most haven't been rebuilt (to my knowledge) as the mock buildroots have been waiting for the CentOS release rather than using RHEL.

                  There is limited supported for that. You can see the documentation for details. However, typically in an enterprise setting that CentOS is targeting, you don't upgrade in place. You provision new systems and use automation to get the software and configuration to match the prior system

                    To add to what Rahul said, that upgrade path is also only for RHEL. There is no tooling rebuilt by the CentOS team as it just wouldn’t work. The upgrade patch for CentOS is backup and reprovision.

                      The "unsupported" is more like "feel free to use but don't ask for our support when your production system has any trouble".
                      Technically I don't think a system that supports Epyc Rome can't support Ryzen
