So a bit back, CentOS 8 got released. And inbetween all the release hype, i found what was basically the most interesting part for me: CentOS Stream
It seems that, with CentOS 8 there is now a rolling CentOS Release. I tried installing it back then, but the Repos weren’t up yet. Retrying it today, it seems to be running quite fine. I was able to update the system online and could install things from the software store:
So, CentOS Stream. Since Fedora is already rolling release, what’s the plan here? From what i gather it’s a look into what’s going into the next Red Hat release. So, Fedora being the “far future” for Red Hat Enterprise and this being more like a Near Future. I guess i’m more familiar with debian so
RHEL/CentOS -> debian stable
CentOS Stream -> debian testing
Fedora -> debian unstable
Is that how it works?
What ever. I think it’s really interesting. Having something that’s more often Updated than CentOS, but is still close to what’s running on most of our Servers certainly is interesting. Fedora is a nice Workstation but often far removed from what’s happening on CentOS Servers.
Feel free to correct me if i’m wrong with my assesment of what this is. Are you interested? What are you thoughts on CentOS Stream <> Fedora?
