I feel totally safe and confident with the fully community-driven effort 
of Rocky Linux, lead by the former founder of the original CentOS 
project. (I am not affiliated with them in any way.)

As has already been mentioned, Rocky Linux has managed to gain quickly 
support from major players in the industry (including Google and 
Microsoft), and is committed to never drop its independent/community 
status. It is well structured and organized, and embraces a good number 
of open-source volunteer specialists.

We want to keep up with RHEL ecosystem and Rocky Linux is - for us - the 
best option.

If some people want to leave the RHEL ecosystem for Debian or FreeBSD, 
that's OK. But for those who want to stay in the RHEL world, Rocky Linux 
stands as a rock-solid solution. This opinion does not reject other 
CentOS clones, but emphasizes the fact that Rocky Linux appears to be a 
solid option for now and the years to come.
