AlmaLinux, an open-source, community-based project, intends to fill the gap left by the stable CentOS community launches.

AlmaLinux say the creators of the CloudLinux operating system. will be a 1: 1 compatible binary fork of RHEL 8.

AlmaLinux enjoys $ 1 million in annual sponsorship from CloudLinux Inc.

Development efforts will be governed by community members.

Alma means “soul” in many Latin languages, including Spanish and Italian. The word comes from the Latin word almus, which means “nourishing, kind”.

CloudLinux/Alma Linux - In December 2020, the community lost one of its most important resources. Red Hat announced that CentOS would no longer be issued as a stable release, instead replaced by the continuously updated CentOS Stream. At CloudLinux we quickly realized the vast implications of Red Hat’s announcement, so we stepped in to commit to a CentOS replacement: a 1:1 binary compatible fork of RHEL® that is free to use, and open source. We gave it the code name Project Lenix. Now, we are announcing the results of Project Lenix: AlmaLinux. Due to be released in Q1 2021, the new Linux distribution enables CentOS users to easily switch to a CentOS replacement that enjoys ongoing support. Switching requires minimal effort: because AlmaLinux is a binary compatible fork of RHEL, the base for CentOS, switching from CentOS to AlmaLinux is extremely simple.
