  • Each time I hear somebody expressing a sentiment about RH8, it's (more or less) along the lines of IT SUCKS. A friend has already switched to Mandrake. (My main development machine at work is still a RH6.2, and they're looking into upgrading...)
    • There are lots of problems with RedHat 8.0, but that's what you get with a .0 release. I'm running it and I mostly like it, but I don't run GNOME or KDE. If you're a gnome user, you'll probably like it.

      For me, the best and the worst thing is that they've tried to switch to UTF-8 wherever possible. I'm immensely happy that somebody has finally had the balls to do this, but I'm unhappy about the number of programs that just aren't quite there yet. Like man pages being wrong sometimes.

      On the whole, I think it's pretty good, but I'd wait for RH81 if you're nervous about new features.
