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.

Re: You are wrong about KDE

Now, this aplies to you and other KDEheads out there: The only change Red Hat made for the worse is renaming .desktop files used in the startup, to names not even similar to GNOME's for God know's what reason.

MOST (almost all, except the one mention on top) is changes for the better. For example, the hack to get rid of QFonts and to use Xft2 is so good...
