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.

Re: Apache?

This is just the problem. Linux = Bloat. I do a minimal install, wanting a nice desktop OS to use email, web and to do word processing on, and I get Apache, a million and one text editors (vi, vim, emacs, pico....) and ten thousand other applications that Joe user will never need. Until linux goes on a serious diet, it's going to be hell for the average user to find his way around in such a cluttered os.
