Overview of the official release of Rocky Linux


Rocky Linux is a community enterprise operating system designed to be 100% bug-for-bug compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), now that CentOS has shifted direction.

The first release of Rocky Linux is now available.

Our guests provide an overview of the new release, and discuss both installing a new Rocky server and upgrading/migrating an existing CentOS server to Rocky.
