Hi Troy and all,

This is something I may want to try as I'm not happy with GNOME and I
can't use it with our nx-libs based remote desktop solution.

Since you mention both RHEL9 Beta and CentOS Stream 9 a question comes up
and I don't remember if this has already been discussed:

Consider I'm running CentOS Stream 9 on a host and RHEL9 is being
released, will there be a clean way to move a CentOS Stream 9 system over
to RHEL9?

Will/should it be possible to use dnf distro-sync for this?

This would be very helpful in certain scenarios.
