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.

Ok, I can see what you mean regarding the srpm issue.
But, being this article mainly for noob, I think it could be a little ... hrm ... intimidating ?

Anyway, yeah, sure, if you install the srpm with rpm -i you can do some nice things to the srpm (like fiddling with Makefiles, for example)... But it ain't the fastest way to install a srpm ;)

Btw, great article, and great points regarding RH decisions on kde... ;)
