I re-visit this thread, since it is crucial for CentOS 8 users.

RESF / Rocky Linux is gaining worldwide recognition and sets itself as 
the primary organization / platform to become the CentOS 8 heir / 
successor in the future.

Google and Microsoft become RESF sponsors/partners:


And so IBM/RH lose the tremendous advantage they had by owning the 
CentOS project, which - it seems - never evaluated correctly.

 From now on, it is clear that hundreds of thousands of CentOS 
installations will be migrating to Rocky Linux.

I also wish the best of success to CentOS Stream, but this is not what 
the CentOS community expected.
