After ny inital discust with rh8 i am warming up....I still
hate the fedora on my "start bar" and i cant find the
sawfish configurator that was in 7.3 and Xconfigurator
appers to be gone and pine is not in the default pakages
and i cant move the redhat update applet blue check around the
way i used to could.But, the bluecurve is pretty smooth...and
it just feels kinda good. Maybe im just wishing this but i think
the mouse server has gotten better....and this is the only thing
that i thought other versions of redhat need. Sometimes
I like to play with the mouse on a windoz box...but I have to
take 3 showers afterwords. Anyway ...gnome2 and redhat8 are pretty
smooth.Just copy over the icons from /usr/share/pixmaps on a 7.3 box
to your current box....old icons better i think. And i cant
seem to figure out how to build src rpms anymore...proably just me :)
