Fedora Core Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released. "Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released on the torrent site. Both DVD and Live images have been provided. Unless something goes terribly wrong, these will be the same bits (modulo gpg signed SHA1SUM files) that will go to the mirrors for the final Fedora 8 release." Update: There is an interview up about CodecBuddy's inclusion in Fedora 8 with the two developers behind this feature.

Give PCLinuxOS a try. Its probably one of the best KDE distros out there. Been using it for the past couple of years and have always gone back to it after trying out several others.

Actually, I already tried PCLinuxOS. Not sure why I didn't like it either. It was quite good for my personal use but I couldn't recommend it to other people in my country - mainly because it lacks good localization (e.g. the installation program is only in english and localization in Firefox didn't work at all).

The most interesting feature of PCLinuxOS was the possibility to "roll your own distro" with just one command. Makes me wonder why distros don't make monthtly versions with all the updates included. It would be much more user friendly if you wouldn't need to install hundreds of megs of updates right after finishing the installation.

Fedora also has a "roll your own distro" application. It is called Revisor. Read about it: http://www.linux.com/articles/114347
