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.

Fantastic article Rob. I am a longtime Red Hat and KDE user and STILL managed to learn a few things. Having used Debian (gasp!) before I was glad to see someone pointing out APT for the RH crowd.....and Synaptic is a real pleasure to work with. Gotta disagree with you on GDM tho.....some of us prefer the simplistic pleasures of KDM! But CHOICE is what it is all about, right? ;-)

I must admit that at first I was somewhat uneasy with some of the changes made by RH, but to be truely honest (and as you point out so well), these changes are very minor. The font rendering in RH8 ALONE is worth it for me. Now if someone could just port the rendering to the Sharp ZAURUS, I'd be a happy man (with much less eyestrain)!
