No kidding.  My first linux box was redhat 5.2 on a Celeron 333 which soon became a Mandrake 5.3 box since redhat wouldn't ship KDE and Gnome was stuck in the "we should look like Windows 95" line of thinking.

Now redhat has just released 5.2 beta.  I've given up on calling it RHEL, though I suppose I should call it "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.1" ;)
