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.

Control Center???

The article mentions the Control Center??? Where the hell is it??? I looked all over hell for it on 8.0! It's not on the desktop, not in the menus. For that matter where is the Wine Configuration GUI??? It took me FOREVER just to get my stinking printer working! A PRINTER for crying out loud!!!!!!! And what happened to the Xconfigurator tool???? Their "display" gui tools won't let me set 32-bit colors! Only 16 or 24, and I don't have 24. What, am I stuck with 16? This is an improvement?? I'm not a Linux guru by any means, so someone tell me if I'm just smoking something.
