The original message came from a CentOS user who asked "is the change a 
non-issue for my use-case?"

So, I'd have to ask you how Debian is relevant to that question.

As I said, in terms of upgrade from one major version to another, CentOS 
Stream and CentOS are identical.  If CentOS was suitable, then the 
change to CentOS Stream is a non-issue in the context of major version 
upgrades, because the change to CentOS Stream has no material impact on 
that concern.

The question being asked is not "what operating system should I use", to 
which discussion of Debian or FreeBSD might be relevant, it's "will the 
change to CentOS Stream impact my current processes?"  Comparisons to 
Debian or FreeBSD are non-sequiturs in the context of this conversation.
