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.

I have been a Mandrake user for years and now thanks to all the noise made by the people who are complaining about RH 8 modifications to KDE/GNOME to make them look similar, etc I decided to give it a try to see what was all about. Guess what? I LOVE IT and I am very much impressed by the looks of the desktop and especially font rendering

I think RH has received a lot of 'free' publicity" from the people who all they do is complain. Guys there are other choices. If you don't like RH 8 and prefer Mandrake 9 or SUSE 8.1, Lindows 2.0 etc, by all means just use what you like.

It is taking me some time to adjust and finding the applications I like since they are in different menus but with time I will get used to them. (I don't like their GNOME folder icons on KDE Konqueror. I think Konqueror folder icons are better looking. I am even spending a lot more time in GNOME, something I never even considered doing before.

I am just tired of some people always telling me how things should be. I use what fits me. Do I care what sofware runs the phone companies backends? No I don't, as long as my phone works reliably I really don't give a damn whether it's a supercomputer or a Commodore 64.
