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.

First of all to the author ... great article!
Now for a question ;)

Does that fonts trick work for all distros or is that a Redhat only thing?

Because of modifications that Redhat makes to Gnome/KDE (whether for better or worse) and because I want to understand what goes on 'behind the scenes', I have pretty much decided to abandon Redhat and switch to a more 'pure' distribution. I personally don't like the idea of 'packages' and things being installed with dependencies when I don't know what the hell they are.
Plus, I am interested to see what 'pure' KDE & Gnome look like, unmodified ... but would still like to use my Windows fonts.
