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.

Haha ... you have no idea!

I poured over this article for HOURS after it was written, changing a word here and there, tweaking a bit, clarifying and quantifying and ... you get the point. I tried my absolute best to word things in such a way as to not sound "preachy" or arrogant, yet still say what I meant to say. To be honest, I still expected to get flamed. There's a scary thought ... maybe it's still coming ...

Of course, I'm pretty sure if I had submitted the rough draft (which sucked a whole lot, trust me), I'd be a smoldering mess by this point.
