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.

mp3 in nautilus and noatun

OK, xmms works now, but I can't get the 'preview' function in Konqueror to work. Konqueror crashes when I click on an mp3. It's still has file association with mp3 because I upgraded. I just want my full mp3 support back and I'm willing to do anything for that (except switching to winXP :-)

Redhat's advise on using ogg is cheap. ogg can not replace mp3 because it can not play it. A real solution would be very much appreciated.

Fonts are still terrible over here. With anti-aliasing it's OK, but there's some bug with xinerama that displays my desktop icon text at a random place somewhere on my two monitors.
I guess this is a problem of either KDE or my X driver (G550) or again the fonts.
