Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.0

The newly Big Blue Red Hat released Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.0 today, based on Fedora 28. Because it's based on F28, this release of RHEL should "just work" on the Talos II (F28 was the first Fedora to support it), and mostly whatever applies to F28 applies to RHEL 8, including GNOME 3.28, Wayland-by-default and other changes. Although both big and little endian are apparently supported on the trial evaluation images, the documentation says only little-endian is supported, so it's possible not all parts of the site are in sync yet. Still, if you like your Linux corporate (and paying for it), now that Red Hat is an IBM product it's probably as corporate as you can get.


  1. Blackbird was shown running RHEL 7 natively at the Red Hat Summit 2019:

    Talos II should be much the same in terms of capability / compatibility.

    1. Yes, since at least 7.4 near as I can tell. 8 will just work in the same way.

  2. Maybe we'll see a POWER developer version of RHEL 8 some day, not just AMD64 and aarch64?
