CentOS, for those who don't know, was community compiled version of the source that went into creating RHEL - effectively a free version of RHEL. It was possible because RHEL was open source!
Yesterday it was announced that CentOS 8 would no longer be based on the latest RHEL 8 ,but rather the RHEL development release.
|over the next year we’ll be shifting focus from CentOS Linux, the rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), to CentOS Stream, which tracks just ahead of a current RHEL release. CentOS Linux 8, as a rebuild of RHEL 8, will end at the end of 2021|
