On the evening of Wednesday 28th April 2021, Rocky Linux founder and

After the news that CentOS 8 will be EOL this year and transition to a
rolling release model, Greg Kurtzer, original founder of the CentOS
project announced Rocky Linux, a free, community-run drop in replacement
for CentOS and RHEL. The first release candidate of Rocky Linux is
expected by 30th April 2021 and an official release by mid-2021.
Greg and Leigh will be talking about the formation and status of Rocky
Linux, answer questions that sysadmins might have and how users can
contribute to the success of Rocky Linux.
It’s a big deal getting these guys to speak to us just as Rocky Linux is
poised to be the big Linux distro story of the year. We’re really
