Yes, OL8 hsa 'dnf' (Dandified Yum), which is the yum replacement. But, on
OL8, yum and dnf are both syminks to the same file.

It’s even worse switching between Ubuntu, Raspbian (Raspberry Pi) and OEL
😊. Yum, Apt, systemd, systemctl; and the list goes on. I actually
have a shell script named “apt” in /usr/local/bin that echoes, “You’re on
OEL, try yum” I guess I’ll have to change that when (not this year!) I
move to OEL 8.

I'm (slowly) getting used to systemd. I've even written a few of my own
(simple) services, and that went ok....
I'm sure they'll change it again any day now.... :-)

Ha! It's systemd that winds me up irrationally.

Thanks for the feedback.
I know this is one of those things, like using ip instead of ifconfig,
that once I start using I'll never go back, but the activation energy to
force myself to override decades of habit is often too much.
It's funny how I'm so into change in Oracle, but for other things I'm a
stubborn old goat.

Not a huge amount to be honest, I'm not a fan of the old-style sending
characters to disk. Our scripts now use code like the line below to create
a new aligned GPT partition that essentially fills the disk. Just feels
easier to understand than the fdisk alternative.
parted -s -a optimal "$disk" mklabel gpt -- mkpart primary ext4 1MiB -2048s

I'm curious. I still use fdisk because I'm lazy I guess. Apart from the
2TB limit for fdisk, is there anything else that makes parted better than
