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.

Works great

I installled it and it works great. I have a Geforce4 4200 and I downloaded the nvidia drivers and have the new Unreal Tournament 2003 running great on it, if you want to use the nvidia 3d drivers you need to make sure you install the developer packages on install.
The icons on the desktop were huge but I just right clicked and hit stretch and made them the size I wanted. Everything is working great and it found all my hardware.
Personally I like the Bluecurve desktop, I'm not real adept at all things linux and this is really easy to use.
