Rich .. I agree .. I don't see Igor and company as the other team either.

I wished the almalinux team well on their launch day on reddit.  This is
because I know many of the people involved in CloudLinux and I have met
them plenty of times at cPanel conferences and other places.  I trust
Igor and his team.

I personally feel that CentOS Stream is a great distro and once you guys
actually see it in practice with all the engineering effort and
community involvement working as envisioned, you will like it and it
will meet your needs.

In my post I said as much about CentOS Stream .. but also IF you still
want to do a downstream and not slightly upstream build of EL source
code, I definitely would look at AlmaLinux.

Here is a link to my post:


My ultimate goal is to make CentOS Stream the most used community
distribution in the world .. but, in doing that there is no need to be
negative toward AlmaLinux.
