RHEL 9 Goes Beta

RedHat Logo
Now that (hopefully?) the CentOS Stream debacle and the subsequent rise of Alma and Rocky Linux is behind us, there’s news from RedHat that RHEL 9 has gone beta.  Is this the love child that will finally heal the warring RPM tribes?

No, but what you’re looking at here is the future Alma and Rocky Linux, once this goes GA.  Or the future RHEL if you prefer to run that under the free 16-system license.

Looking at the release notes, there is much revving of packages and various enterprisey things.  They do say it’s a “watershed” release for them and a “bold step” and such.

Interestingly, logging in as root over SSH will be disabled by default starting in RHEL 9.
