Just a friendly reminder that if you've been procrastinating in migrating past the once-great CentOS Linux 7, there is less than one week to go now until it's officially end-of-life.

The CentOS Linux 7 end-of-life date is still slated to happen on 30 June. As part of shifting focus to CentOS Stream, Red Hat made the controversial move back in 2020 to go all-in on Stream for CentOS and in turn EOL'ing CentOS 7 in June 2024 as the last of the non-Stream support.

Those still relying on CentOS 7 in production can migrate to the paid Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 with extended life cycle support through 2028. CentOS 7 users can also migrate/upgrade to community alternatives such as AlmaLinux, Rocky Linux, SUSE Liberty Linux, etc.

More details on the CentOS Linux EOL for those interested via RedHat.com. The end of an era.
