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.

installing

I downloaded one iso, that wasn't enough, there wasn't a continue later option in the install proces so I had to wait until the second one was downloaded...

The install went allright, the default choice is about 1500MB of stuff. On my new aldi laptop it seems to recognize everything, it did suggest that I should create a bootfloppy, I didn't but it still booted allright..
The partition program is a nice improvement from fdisk :-)

Now wondering if it has a sleep mode for the laptop, closing the screen doesn't make it sleepy.

Considering previous/other releases things are getting better.
