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.

Why was that? What sort of printer? And what were you doing? If you give more details, maybe someone might offer helpful suggestions. There is a printer tool under "System Tools" (if I remember correctly. Using that tool, my printer was up and running in less than a minute.

Well, who knows? Redhat wants feedback from users, that's for sure. OSNEWS is pretty big these days. Unless the people at Redhat are dumb, they would be following up on all these reviews.
