    On AWS

    CentOS is still a joke;

    Rocky Linux is nowhere to be found (maybe because it's still RC);

    Ubuntu is good;

      People who moved on to Debian/Ubuntu will never look back.

        They have an aarch64 release, but they are on an RC for 8.3. Alma has x64 only, but they are doing a beta for 8.4. These are early days still, but this could be some very good stuff.

          Massive 9 gb download to get started installing. Anaconda is still a complete disaster after all these years. Good old RedHat, I truly have not missed you one bit since the early 2000's. Already deleted it, dodged a massive bullet with this stupid thing.

            Redhat really screwed up CentOS.

            Look at the differences in terms of likes and retweet between the latest Rocky and CentOS announcements on twitter.
            Nobody cares about CentOS anymore, everybody is just waiting for Rocky.

              Good luck to Rocky Linux.

              I will have one install of Centos Linux 8 that I will deal with by the end of the year. I think I prefer the free upgrade to RHEL route. That way I will be able to forget about it for up to 5 odd years. Either that or I may move it to Centos Stream - I have moved one install over to this and it has been flawless.

                Best of luck to the Rocky Linux team, maybe RH/IBM will return the "community enterprise operating system" moniker to, y'know, the community project.

                  Correct, that's because it's still RC. You can expect the full GA release to be up there. AWS is a sponsor of Rocky Linux.

                    Rocky Linux is the CentOS clone.
                    AlmaLinux is the RHEL clone.
