The future of CentOS and OpenMAMA

Frank Quinn

Hi Folks,


I’m curious about the community feeling towards the future of CentOS. I’d appreciate a reply with one or a selection of the following for those of you running Red Hat derivative distributions:


  1. We will be clinging onto CentOS 7 for dear life since CentOS 8 will be EOL 2021 but CentOS 7 won’t be EOL until 2024
  2. We will be making the jump to CentOS Stream
  3. We will go with one of the CentOS clones
  4. We will bide our time and wait to see which CentOS clone comes out on top
  5. This doesn’t really affect us – we use RHEL everywhere
