Red Hat Linux 8.0 marks Red Hats first release thats specifically designed for desktop users. With greater attention paid to fit and finishin the GNOME and KDE desktop environments and the inclusion of several new, easy-to-use graphical configuration utilitiesRed Hat makes a strong case for extending its leadership in the Linux community to the desktop.
Red Hat Linux 8.0 is available in $39.95 Personal and $149.95 Professional versions, with the differences between the two amounting to boosted support and documentation. Red Hat Linux is an open-source product, and it may be downloaded and distributed freely as well. (+) New look and feel for GNOME and KDE improves usability while maintaining interface flexibility; configuration tools, such as those for display settings, make system maintenance much easier than in previous versions.
