centos 8?

hello - i just saw that centos-8 is now available. is this something that IS will be offering soon, or does it already? is there anything in c-8 that is motivating enough to start looking at it?

or is one better to wait a year or so for all the issues to be resolved?

Templates will be made for it soon. It can be installed via an ISO right now. I haven't personally tried it yet.
i am thinking that any new account might want to start up right away on C8, since C7 is less than five years away from EOL.
