How do you intend to test, and measure stability?

I'm not trying to be contrary, or facetious, I'm looking to learn something in this situation.

Thank you,

I suppose I understand the negative feedback -- CentOS 8.x will no 
longer be a rebuild of RHEL 8.x but will instead be some version of 
RHEL 8.(x + 1) -- but I'm much more interested in empirical results 
than in suppositions. I've taken a couple test VMs and set them to 
CentOS 8 Stream and will keep an eye on them. They will either prove 
stable or not, but (observation > guessing) in my book.

If history is any guide, they will prove very stable. If not, then 
I'll pour one out for CentOS and look elsewhere.
