I'm giving CentOS Stream another try, this time the 9 Beta, and also in GNOME Boxes instead of bare metal.

So far:

* Install was uneventful (It helps to be familiar with Anaconda).

* While the "DVD" image is huge (~8GB), the installation is small. I'd rather make the choice beteween Flatpaks and RPMs for my applications, so this is a good move.

* Looks great (GNOME 40). If you can manage to get the apps you need between CentOS, EPEL, Copr and Flatpaks, this is a great workstation.


@passthejoe Why beta? CS9 was released a few months ago. RHEL9 is still in Beta, though.
