While true, I also feel that RH is trying to actively shape its 
distribution away from small enterprise needs. For example, common 
packages are deprecated and/or removed (eg: virt-manager, screen, 
kernel-side DRBD, pam_mysql, etc) and EPEL 8 (which is fundamental to my 
CentOS/Rocky installations) is in a bad state.

My impression is that RH is following cloud vendors & hyperscale needs - 
with Stream as a clear example. This is not an inherently bad thing, but 
it quite different from what the small and medium businesses I service 

So, while closely watching RH/CentOS/Rocky, I am going to steer new 
deployments on Ubuntu LTS or Debian.
