Sure, the install went over fine, but that's nothing new. KDE 3 seems
to be nice, and I really wanted
it to be nice. However, once you get past the apparent speed increase and some silly eye candy luxuries, it's really nothing to write home about.
To be honest, I don't know where the problem lies; that is, it could be KDE or it could be Red Hat. Either way, one of them is causing this install to be disgustingly unstable and generally inadequate. Perhaps if I were more of a computer dork I would be able to diagnose the root of this problem, but the main symptom is that after a bit of light use, the system suddenly clenches like a spasmatic sphincter.
While Red Hat 7.2 elicited its fair share of grievances from me, none of them were so bad as this one. I strongly encourage people who are considering the most well known Linux distribution to reconsider and stick with Windows.
