    ikm sure i read it on Phoronix website

    I am a freeloading parasite who thinks operating systems are created by magic dust and free sunshine, and therefore I refuse to pay a single cent for all the developer effort that went into creating CentOS, its packages, its repositories and testing it for stability because open source developers are supposed to work for no pay.
    Fixed that for you. You're welcome.

    Another possibility?

    At IBM, how those outside of IBM perceive them is everything.

    The CentOS takeover and destruction, while it might not seem like a "big deal", was sort of a black eye to IBM reputation wise.

    IBM: "Thou shall not do that."

    Have a feeling this wasn't a simple "step down" by Whitehurst.

    If CentOS Stream can become something like a stablised Fedora -1 or Fedora -2, it'll be much more suited for workstations. As it is, Opensuse Leap is the only distribution that offer long lifespans while having reasonably modern and up-to-date packages at the point of release and for each point update.

    Debian and Ubuntu LTS are resonably up-to-date at the time of release, but their subsequent point update usually offers little in the way of new stuff.
    That's pretty much exactly what CentOS Stream is supposed to be: upstream to RHEL and downstream from Fedora. Old CentOS was a downstream stepchild of RHEL.

    RHEL 7 was branched from Fedora 19/20.

    (see also: Wikipedia - Relationship_with_Fedora)

    Diffing between those versions will get you a rough idea of what to expect, but only the Release Notes will be able to tell you for sure.
    interesting, so i take it RHEL9 wont be coming with DNF5 like i thought it was gonna have

    The community's gone...
    The "community" is bigger now than it was before the changes. Before it was just a rebuild community. Find bugs? tough luck. Need features: Tough luck. Something not working? Tough luck.

    After the change bugs get reported, community is working on future features via SIGS and things are getting fixed.

    It may not be precisely what you want, but the old model had no community - they had mostly either drifted away (such as co founder that is now doing Rocky) or become part of Red Hat. Users are not community.
