The end of CentOS 8 Linux has been coming for awhile now, and the day is finally here. On December 31, 2021, Red Hat‘s CentOS Linux 8 will reach End Of Life (EOL). Since that falls right in the heart of the holiday season, Red Hat will extend CentOS Linux 8 zero-day support until January 31, 2022. Indeed, there will be one last CentOS Linux 8 release — perhaps even after CentOS 8’s official EOL. After that, it’s all over for CentOS Linux.
Yikes! Just heard about this. Last year I chose CentOS 8 over 7 for this server so I would not have to deal with end of life issues for awhile. It appears CentOS 7 will be good until 2024 and 8 ends today. Ugh.
