    Phoronix: CentOS Linux 8 2105 Released As RHEL 8.4 Equivalent

    While CentOS Linux 8 is being discontinued at the end of the year in favor of Red Hat focusing those resources on CentOS Stream, CentOS Linux 8 2105 was released today as the newest version that is now based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4 sources...

    Hopefully there is an upgrade path to Rocky 8 once its released. I'm guessing there probably will be, as there are guides out there for switching a system between CentOS and RHEL. Change the repos, remove the subscription-manager, and a few other steps.

      IBM provide a path away to competition? Unlikely.

      Users doing it themselves and sharing with the community? Highly probable. This is Linux, after all.

        I think if CentOS stream works well with binaries throughout EOL it will be successful

          Oracle (IIRC Alma and some university's rebuild also) provide automated scripts for converting away. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Rocky offered a similar script.

            Yeah, Alma Linux does for sure. Has Rocky made a release yet?

                they released an 8.3RC that is not intended to be used in production.
                They also demoed a script to easily convert from CentOS to Rocky.

                  Nice to see progress. I believe AlmaLinux released 8.4 about a week after RHEL8.4 was released.
                  According to Distrowatch:
                  RHEL 8.4 released on 05-21-2021
                  AlmaLinux 8.4 released on 5-26-2021

                  Which is pretty impressive! I remember times when CentOS would take 3 months...

                    Think about this:

                    It makes no--as in ZERO--sense for CentOS to be 'muddying the waters' like this.

                    Now ask yourself the question, "WHY are they doing this?"
