I recently switch from Fedora to CentOS for my work laptop.

99% of the time it's the same. Few programs can be missing by default or
old version like for my professional activity : wireshark, keepassXC,
linphone, sipcalc, etc..

But with a bit of compilation inside a docker (to avoid installing dev libs
on the OS) or AppImage/FlatPak/Snap you can run everything.

Some default parameters on gnome are different too, just a question of

Happy with my CentOS on my laptop so far (hp envy). Much more stable. Never
had a crash after hibernate/back to life or external screen not discovered
for no (good) reason.
