    Rocky Linux will release its Rocky Linux 8.3 release candidate(s) on or around April 30, 2021.
    Rocky Linux 8.3 will be rpm compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3.

    This is the third release to fill the CentOS 8 gap, as CentOS Linux 8 ends in December 2021.
    Always good to see more options being added.

    - Oracle Linux
    - AlmaLinux
    - Rocky Linux

    With 3 flavors, there is more than enough to choose to continue to use CentOS non Streamish :)

    I have tested Rocky Linux 8.3 release candiate but wonder if it is worthy of the predicate release canditate.

    I couldn't get secure boot to work and this is confirmed by Rocky Linux's staff as not functioning.
