CentOS 8 with GNOME

Post by politor » 2019/11/09 19:08:05

Hello guys!

I plan on installing CentOS 8 today coming from a Debian 9 environment.

What are your opinions about CentOS 8 with GNOME? Is it reliable? Would you recommend it?

Also if I want to use it as a home server, can I use CentOS 8 or should I stick with CentOS 7?

Thanks guys. :geek:

EDIT : for those who are interested, I found the installation tutorial here.

Since the only desktop in the CentOS repos is gnome, that makes the choice fairly easy! You can find (possibly incomplete) copies of KDE in various EPEL repos (you may need to enable the epel-playground repo which is even more "testing" than epel-testing). I would hope that we'll also get xfce and MATE at some point too.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

Xfce is already available. I got it and I am very satisfied.
