    The circle of life. The demise of one is the rise of another. Perhaps. On that note, I've done a review of an early release of Rocky Linux 8, a RHEL-compatible distribution designed to be replacement for CentOS 8, tested in a multi-boot Windows and Linux setup on a laptop with UEFI and Intel graphics, covering installation and post-install usage, including look and feel, customization - tweaks, themes, icons, fonts, extensions, RPM Fusion repos and extra software, Wireless, Samba, NTFS support, hardware compatibility, stability, performance, resource usage, some problems, and more. Take a look.
