CentOS stream is gaining poularity - and Red Hat has now launched RHEL Stream to compete with it.

When Red Hat decided to kill the stable CentOS in favor of rolling release CentOS Stream, it created a sort of revolt.

The adamant sysadmins who preferred a decade old distribution instead of the goodness of the latest software and updates didn’t like this democratic decision of Red Hat. They foolishly looked for CentOS alternatives despite Red Hat repeatedly telling them that CentOS Stream is for their own good.

Red Hat started offering free RHEL licenses to small scale CentOS users with no intention of luring medium to big scale CentOS users into purchasing RHEL licenses.
