Red Hat I know what you're thinking, but don't worry. This article isn't 'Yet Another Red Hat 8.0 Review'. This article is primarily about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a newbie, but it's also about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a KDE user. Why? I happen to be a KDE user, so it makes sense I'd focus more on what I know the most about. Plus, I still remember the frustration of staring with something akin to terror at a blank command line with lots of ideas about what I'd like to do and very little knowledge of how to do it.

Xft Mozilla

Font are really awesome... And soon Mozilla will have it to. ;) I tried the Xft enabled build for Red Hat and this is the first time that Mozilla fonts really blew me away.
Look at this:

Isn't it beautiful? And I'm still using the original fonts (Nimbus), no "Arial-cheating" or anything like that.
While the fonts aren't perfectly clean and sharp, they are simply really really nice and fine to work with. ;)

I'm not using this Mozilla though as I prefer the Bluecurve Mozilla with Galeon. Because that's finally a Galeon where the scrollbar doesn't look out of place but integrated. ;) And it works perfectly reliable. Like almost everything on this Red Hat install. There were a few quirks right after installation and a few minor bugs I might report but now I'm getting more and more impressed with every day.
