MIRACLE LINUX is a Japanese Linux distribution provided by Cybertrust Corporation. It has been based on RHEL since Version 2.0 released in May 2001, and has been a complete RHEL clone since Version 6.0 released in January 2012. The latest version is 9.2, released on October 05, 2023, but can be installed just like 9.0.
MIRACLE LINUX, a well-known domestic RHEL clone, was initially a commercial OS with a paid license, but following the demise of CnetOS8, it was announced that it would be offered free of charge starting with the latest 8.4. Therefore, MIRACLE LINUX is currently in the limelight as a candidate for migration from CentOS8 and CentOS Stream9.
