    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
