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.

Andrew: You miss read my point. I know what the difference between 24-bit & 32-bit color. My video cards does *support* 24-bit color, only 32. So, if 8.0 only gives my a choice of 16 and 24, I'm stuck with 16. Besides, contrary to what you say, there is a noticable difference, and its in speed (at least, that's what I've noticed). Is there something I have to do to get it to allow 32-bit?

Linux_baby: I have one of those printers that works with only cups. With the KDE cups gui that was in 7.3, it was easy. But with 8.0, I had to start and stop the cups server and set the default printer sevice to cups and reboot, all of these SEVERAL times before it work even let me create a printer! Why did they get rid of all the nice and easy KDE tools?
