AlmaLinux OS is a 1:1 binary compatible fork of RHEL 8. In other words, it can be used as a direct CentOS replacement.
The team behind the distribution announced the long-awaited launch of the first stable release of AlmaLinux OS. The date is March 30th, 2021.
Launched with the code-name Project Lenix, AlmaLinux OS is an open-source, community-driven project that intends to fill the gap left by the demise of the CentOS stable release. It is built by the creators of the established CloudLinux OS.
After a little more than three very intense months in development, AlmaLinux OS is proud to present the first stable version to Linux community.
After the beta release of the code, the distribution received extensive testing from the community to meet user expectations of reliability and performance. These efforts resulted in a production-ready alternative to CentOS that is supported by community members.
The announcement of the AlmaLinux OS Purple Manul will take place on the live event at 10 am EST on Tuesday, the 30th of March 2021. The event will feature interviews, announcements, and special surprises.
You will meet the whole AlmaLinux OS Team. You’ll learn first-hand what it takes to put together a distribution of this size. In addition, CloudLinux CEO & Founder Igor Seletskiy will share some good news about AlmaLinux OS Regulatory Board.
