    Phoronix: CentOS-8 1911 Released As Rebuild Off Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1

    Why are they not just calling it Centos 8.1 like previously? Because it is fun if we all need a fucking spreadsheet in the future to see what versions are compatible?

    Who comes up with this shit?

      Centos 7 also had the date as version numbers.

        The ISO names (and likely the /etc/{centos-release,os-release}) include the minor version number.

        As does the mirror: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/

        Cheers,

          The year is the upstream RHEL release month/year.

          It makes sense to be honest, so you know that RHEL 7.7 came out after 8.0.

            CentOS 7 took a while, but 7.1 and future point releases were much faster than this.

            You can see the delays here
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CentOS#CentOS_version_7

            Hopefully 8.2 will be much faster.

              Because its not 1:1 aligned to RHEL. The new terminology is more true. If you want a stable enterprise Linux with a predictable release process, buy RHEL.

              And expect more of CentOS resources to move to Streams, which will make release numbers meaningless.

                But i'm willing to trade some of that stability to get some newer software, polish and kernels...

                  CentOS is the most bizarre/crap Linux distro out there! The first CentOS 8 boot (minimal) iso fails miserably! You have to change the package mirror manually to be able to proceed with the install... Just TROLOLOL!

                  https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=16456

                  Then, the "Next" button is beyond the screen limits, you can't even see it. Like, WTF?! lol

                  Utter crap! How can they release such a broken image like that?

                  I assume that whoever uses RedHat-based distros, have no idea about what they're doing!

                  Debian is light years ahead of everybody else.

                    Whoever uses RedHat-based distros is almost certainly paid to do so, and probably appreciates all the idiotic errors because working around them means overtime hours. RedHat knows how to keep their end users happy.
