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.

I was trying to install RH 8 on my friends system, but ended up leaving a bad impression. I did everything i could to make it work, but it kept booting saying 'not enough free memory' (i think the boot partition wasnt big enough? not enough swap? dunno) he has 512meg DDR, but he had 1/2 the system as win2k. Anyway, I brought along a debian disk, and we ended upgoing w/that, after installed RH8 3 times-quite embarassing...
