Very good distro, but I have found many issues in tradicional installation procedure, however using the live image it performed very well, recognizing my notebook hardware and installed without any error. I'm going to use for desktop not server, but I hope the lack of packages can be supplied by flatpak, snap, gnu guix, appimage and docker apps.

I'm using Almalinux because I do not want to install and reinstall my linux every 2 or 3 years. Most distros haven`t a good end of life and Rolling Releases breaks to much. I have used CentOS8 for some months and it was amazing, management of system resources are expectacular, too much different from ubuntu that eats all of your resources.

Downloaded and installed both versions, KDE and Gnome. Both without any issues whatsoever. Even found how to add repositories on their Wiki page. Solid, sturdy, and quite beautiful to boot. Will use this for quite a while I think as it was solid. Adding Flatpaks was easy, as was updating, and customizing. I should say I am quite familiar with Red Hat and Fedora, so this was a no brainer for me. So far so good on two machines, both DE. I hope this project will be around quite a while. I like Rocky Linux too, but not too keen on the name, i get why, but just rubs me wrong. Alma (soul) makes sense. Love it.

Overall I really like the 9.1 version, fast and responsive desktop! Well structured and easy to manage. All hardware was recognized and the installer worked very well. EPEL and RPMfusion installed without fuss.

But on the negative side ... I"m not pleased with Flathub, flatpaks and Freedesktop.org. I don"t like the idea of portable apps. It"s a single source that could inject problems in general.

The fact that it"s a workhorse of a desktop and simple to navigate is a great way to get your work dome.
