Right on, Greg!
I starting using Red Hat in 1996 and have tried at least six other
distros over the years. Right now, I can't see how anyone could find
much wrong with Fedora FC4 running KDE... it is close to being perfect
as a desktop replacement for Win XP. And updating with yum is a breeze,
keeping it right where you want to be.
