CentOS has torrents (even Stream), Stella was awesome, live ISOs are also awesome, and you should try CentOS Stream
Torrents are available for all CentOS releases. After that, I cram a bunch of other stuff into this fun-filled entry.
I have so many notes. I started running CentOS Stream 8 five months ago, and I wanted to document every win, loss, setback and solution as I tried to make what isn’t really a desktop distribution — Red Hat Enterprise Linux (and its clones) — into my laptop operating system. I’m not going to look at my notes. This non-review won’t write itself, and the notes aren’t going to do it for me.
