    With CentOS Stream now "tracking ahead" of RHEL, where exactly does this leave Fedora, Red Hat's community Linux distro and long-time RHEL test release? Find out in this article.

     

    Red Hat, CentOS's Linux parent company, announced in early December it was "shifting focus from CentOS Linux, the rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), to CentOS Stream, which tracks just ahead of a current RHEL release." That move ticked off CentOS users and it also left many others wondering where, exactly, does Fedora, Red Hat's community Linux distribution and de facto beta, go from here?

    Good question. 

    When CentOS Stream was introduced, Chris Wright, Red Hat's CTO, said "developers … require earlier access to code, improved and more transparent collaboration with the broader partner community, and the ability to influence the direction of new RHEL versions. It is these opportunities that CentOS Stream is intended to address."
