There are already several others available for reinstall. Do you mean one to replace so it can stay at a choice of 4?

We offer a bit more under the virtual DVD drive section on the Server Control tab in your control panel, including Arch. If what you want is not listed definitely reach out to us and we can see about getting it added.

^ This. I did consider mentioning that Arch is available as a DVD, however it seems the point of this point is rather about replacements for CentOS considering the EOL of it.

I think we were waiting for the dust to settle on things and see what replacement actually rose in adoption.

Last I recall, there was one called AlmaLinux or something along those lines that is a 1:1 replacement, but there are mentions of a RockyLinux now as well.

Thanks for the relies, and yes I was asking if the installer for CentOS was going to be replaced with something else. I had seen the cd drives of the but didn't realize it had other installers. :oops: Never really looked actually....
I can see waiting for the dust to settle before pulling the plug, I was just curios if there was plans on adding installers.

Thanks
