Red Hat Well, here on OSNews, there has been plenty of discussion about Red Hat 8, what it is, what it isn't, the Bluecurve look and many other features and issues. I ordered Red Hat 8 Personal Edition and decided to see how close Red Hat 8 may be to a distribution that Joe and Jane User could install and use.

Yes, a Radeon 7500 sound card - that was quite a typo <g>.

Yes, there is no Applications CD...I'm not sure where that came from. Yesterday, Red Hat PE 8, SuSE 8.1 and ONone all came in at the same time....I think I got confused.

3D acceleration - yes, it does seem to be working, although they warn you about possible instability.

Big Icons - yes, they are huge, aren't they? I can only imagine how big they are at 800 x 600!

A side note - when doing monitor configuration, I thought of Eugenia and her loaned 24". I noticed that, with my Phillips 17", even 1600 x 1200 was grayed out! <g>

Thanks for the corrections1
