The Rocky Enterprise Software Foundation (RESF) is pleased to announce the General Availability of Rocky Linux 8.4 for the following architectures:


ArchitectureMinimalDVDBootPackages
x86_64XXXX
ARM64 (aarch64)XXXX

Sufficient testing has been performed such that we have confidence in its stability for production systems. Free community support is available through the Rocky Linux Mattermost, IRC, and forums. Paid commercial support is currently available through CIQ.


🥳🥳🥳

DA: maybe open new sub forums for these new OS?

Which is best to use Alma or Rocky? Both seem to be at full release now.

Community seems to be leaning more toward Alma from what I can tell.
I think is quite the opposite, community is more towards Rocky while big enterprises are using AlmaLinux because of CloudLinux. However, Rocky is more community-driven like CentOS (I mean his creator was one of CentOS founders). Also Rocky Linux just came out while Alma has been around a few months. I think both can co-exist like Ubuntu and Debian tho.

I am leaning towards rocky. Both are dependent on redhat but rocky seems more community driven to me but IDK. I would consider moving too ubuntu but there LTS is not supported as long as Centos as I understand.

I have not tried AlmaLinux. I am installing DA on Rocky currently and all is going well. I seems to install fine. Running ./build all now. So far no issues. Build all finished no errors. Rocky should work.
I think is quite the opposite,
I think he means the DA community. Not the Community at large. I personally think the which is best doesn't really matter. They are all fairly equal in performance and support. If you know debian use that. If you know ubuntu use that. They all have their problems and 90% of them are linked to some corporate sponsor or will be.

I used a Redhat variation forever once the sold out and the need for CentOS was born. It been all down hill. The nail was when IBM bought them. Not sure if Alma or Rocky will be around very long. All IBM needs to do is wake up and close the upstream

I personally prefer FreeBSD or Debian. They are the most free of corporate sponsors. The issue for Debian and FreeBSD is the community just takes and never gives.
