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.

>>"To get a feel for what Red Hat is working toward, visit http://www.freedesktop.org ... I think pretty much all the changes Red Hat made to GNOME and KDE (to integrate them) are listed there somewhere."

By "listed there" I didn't mean a literal list of what Red Hat has done, I meant that this site contains a list of proposals for creating unity among the desktops and Red Hat's changes come in large part from those proposals. Sorry I wasn't more clear.

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

I honestly don't know if other distros support it, since all the other ones I've ever used had a GUI font installer. :-) I wouldn't be surprised if the feature becomes more widespread though, as Red Hat's hacks to XFT and FreeType become more widely used.
