Red Hat "We see the desktop as only a piece of the entire operating system product; integration must extend beyond the desktop. We also believe that users care most about functionality and integration rather than the underlying technology. For these reasons, we have created a single desktop look and feel for Red Hat Linux rather than maintaining two unrelated configurations." Very good stuff over there from Owen Taylor, the Red Hat Desktop Team member.

I don't see KDE
by Mutiny on Mon 16th Sep 2002 08:28 UTC

From what I read, RH isn't changing KDE or Gnome, only the settings. So what's the problem?

I can't see any KDE on my system with the default install. All the KDE stuff seemed to be on disk 3 and I never used that one.

Null is the best desktop Linux I've used so far. It is comfortable and even runs on my legacy free Abit IT7 Board!!! I haven't tried the onboard RAID because I use a 3Ware Escalade RAID controller, but the firewire, all USB and sound work perfectly.

I added nvidia drivers, Crossover Office and Plugins and then installed the Unreal Tournament 2003 Demo. That's ALL I had to do to get a working system on the hardest motherboard to support with any OS other than Windows.

It is a smooth running distro and very professional. I think RH has the right idea.
