Currently CentOS-Stream is the same as CentOS.

In the future new features and upgrades will appear in Stream as a sort
of rolling release and it will form the basis of future RHEL releases
(and subsequently CentOS releases). It will also be the place for
community input into RHEL/CentOS.  Think of it as halfway between the
cutting edge Fedora and the stable RHEL releases.

The industry still needs the absolutely rock solid platform that is
RHEL/CentOS for mission critical servers and as a basis for commercial
software. But there is clearly also a need for more up-to-date things
for desktops and so on that doesn't have the cutting edge "danger" of
