AlmaLinux is a great project too, IMHO, but things show that the new 
industry standard (replacing CentOS) will probably be Rocky Linux.

(Yes, RHEL **AND** CentOS have indeed been industry standards - the 
point of reference -, IMHO, and this is what IBM/RHEL have failed to 
realize: You don't alter a point of reference.)

It is interesting to see what Service Providers will do with their (huge 
numbers of) CentOS installations, when they migrate...

 From the users/admins' perspective it is to their interest to have 
robust and healthy alternatives.

In our org, I am now using Rocky Linux on new installations (without 
issues) and will be migrating several CentOS 8 boxes to Rocky Linux as well.
