CentOS 8

CentOS 8 is a short-lived Linux distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Due to a change in policy, CentOS 8 had an early end of life on December 31, 2021.

If you are using CentOS 8, you can easily migrate to other RHEL based distributions like Alma Linux, RockyLinux or Oracle Linux.

CentOS will now provide CentOS 8 Stream, which is a rolling release Linux distribution. CentOS 8 Stream will position itself in the middle of Fedora and RHEL. It won’t be a copy of RHEL, instead, it will be used as a testing ground for RHEL. Newer versions of the software get released on CentOS 8 Stream, once it becomes stable, it will be included in RHEL.
