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: About #LoadModule "dri"

NVidia provides its own direct hardware acceleration layer (that's what the kernel module is for), so loading the XFree module on top of that would be a bad idea.

Amazing article, Rob. I haven't run Linux in a while but thanks to your article, I think I will give it another try pretty soon.
