You should be just fine with CentOS for most cases. Check out the new Fedora
Toolbox command ('toolbox') — this makes it super-easy to launch and
maintain "pet" containers using podman, and you could use this to provide a
Fedora working environment for when you need newer stuff. (Or conversely
people running a Fedora OS can do the opposite with a CentOS container.)

One thing I'm curious about, though -- you mention installs getting to be a
drag. Have you tried the update process in the last few releases? It's
basically like applying a big set of updates, with no reinstall required.
