If you have to ask this question .. then you know nothing about me or the CentOS Project. I personally built and released 95% of the CentOS Linux packages from CentOS Linux 4.0 on. It is really my life's passion for the last 17 years. I was very upset / depressed when CentOS Linux 8 was given an early EOL. I do not now, nor will I ever like (or agree with) the decision. I get to have my opinion. I also work for Red Hat. I am not the decider .. I am an employee. So I do what I can do. That fact has nothing to do with CentOS Stream, which I do feel is the best open source enterprise distro available since there will be no CentOS Linux moving forward (except CentOS 7 until the nomral EOL). I also think Stream helps both Red Hat and RHEL customers. I have no idea what your agenda is. I do know who is working on the CentOS Stream project and I know what is being done on a daily basis. Stream will absolutely be a great distribution. Whether it meets your needs or not, only you can decide.
