    Nice fingers crossed for updated and more newer linux kernel (4.15+), gcc (7.2/8) and glibc (2.26+) - can always dream :)

    Keep dreaming :)
    The anaconda at rhel8-alpha-branch is based on Fedora 27's anaconda.
    Fedora uses a rolling release on the kernel i.e. a version is renewed via updates - 4.14 < 4.15 etc.

    Enterprise Linux (EL) not.
    EL always uses one single long term kernel with backport stuff.
    In short, a possibility is (based on Fedora 27):

    GCC 7.2
    Glibc 2.26
    Long term kernel for example 4.14 or even 4.9.

    My prognosis:
    A release 6 months after the first public alpha (TBA).
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 GA lets say end of the year .. Q3/Q4 2018.

    Yeah it's a long shot it's why Fedora is on my long term to do list for OSes supported by Centmin Mod :D

    Following this topic.
    It seems obvious to me that RHEL 8 alpha is indeed tested with hardware/software partners.
    Right now.

    nice.. this is usually where I would load up local virtualbox instance testing on my work laptop which is 4C/8T based but that has died and backup travel laptop is only 2C/4T so can't do that many concurrent guest OS server tests as I'd like. Can't wait to get delivery of my new Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen6 laptop ~2-3 weeks for delivery so can get back to 4C/8T environment :)

    Plenty of internal fresh server farms available here to test :)
    Already seen the alpha through a partner.
    Up to the final Rhel8.

    thanks for heads up

    seems MongoDB is being dropped by RHEL8 and other distros as an offered package due to license changes MongoDB "open-source" Server Side Public License rejected | ZDNet

    Update. From my network I understand that a release of RHEL 8 is near.
    The tweet below confirmed my contact.

    not sure

    but looks like a lot more cooks in the kitchen when it comes to CentOS 8 at least now that CERN/Scientific Linux folks are moving to CentOS 8 focused development https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Scientific-Linux-EOL

    I don't like this news at all.
    There is no real EL clone anymore.

    It is unclear what will happen to project: CentOS in the near future,
    as IBM has taken over Red Hat.

    CentOS is full ownership and a project of Red Hat itself.

    I myself still think exit CentOS.
    After all, you are not going to give away your own flagship for free.
    Even if it is re-branded. There is no reason.

    That's why I think it's a strange CERN announcement. Given the time.

    As Oracle Linux add her own code to it's EL distro.
    It is more like a fork than a clone nowadays.
