During a previous Central INdiana Linux User Group (CINLUG) meeting, members were chatting about using CentOS as a platform for developing on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).  Questions came up about how CentOS Stream figures into the mix.  So, we sought out a specialist to tell us about it!

On Wednesday, April 5th, Peter Larsen[1] will cover how CentOS Stream[2] differs from RHEL and how CentOS Stream is much more like RHEL than what the old CentOS Linux ever was -- all while strengthening its community focus.  We'll talk about Open Source principles and the big perspective on how GNU/Linux distributions are made.

The meeting will begin at 18:30 (6:30 PM) EDT.

Peter Larsen has been a GNU/Linux user since the mid 1990s and has used it on professional, production servers since the late 1990s.  His preferred distributions are RPM-based:  Fedora for his graphical workstation jobs and CentOS/RHEL for his server workloads.

Throughout his life, Peter has programmed on mainframes, worked on OS/2 and tolerated Windows NT.   Having started his professional career in 1987, he is proud that the last time that he used Windows professionally was in 2006.  GNU/Linux works for all kinds of work!

Peter is an Open Source proponent[3], is active in several Linux user groups and is a frequent speaker. 

CINLUG thanks Moser Consulting[4] for hosting our CINLUG meetings at their facility[5].  (There will be a phone number at the entrance to call to be let into the building.)  The meeting will be simultaneously broadcast over Jitsi Meet[6] for those who cannot attend in person.  (Though in-person attendance is encouraged.)

CINLUG meetings are the 1st Wednesday of every month.  Please be sure to block that night off in your calendar to keep it available!
