    INTRODUCING RED HAT LINUX 8.0

    OK, if you're still using Red Hat Linux 6.1 on the desktop you need to
    minimize Under the Brim for a moment and take a look at this. Seriously.
    Do it now.

    http://redhat.rsc03.net/servlet/cc5?...hgtpgLQhjnV2VR


    This is Red Hat Linux 8.0.

    Red Hat Linux 8.0 comes in two versions: Personal and Professional. And
    features some brilliant technical upgrades like a new kernel, easy
    graphical installation, a menu structure that makes sense... But the
    real show is the interface. We think you'll see why.

    See the 8.0 demo:

    GRANNY, LOCK THE DOORS! RED HAT'S GOING ON THE ROAD

    Next week here in the United States we observe Columbus Day, which this
    year marks the 510th anniversary of the year that Columbus "discovered"
    America. Which the Native Americans had "discovered" at least 12,000 years
    earlier. And was subsequently "discovered" by Jack Kerouac, Charles
    Kuralt, William Least Heat Moon, and Neil Diamond, among others.

    We want in on the action.

    On October 31st, Red Hat will embark on Red Hat Road Tour 2002. Four
    men. Two weeks. One RV. One big country. And one solitary purpose:
    to discover the state of Linux in America.

    We invite you to follow along on the adventure of a lifetime as our
    ragtag gang of ruffians meets with Linux users like yourself all across
    the United States to find out what they like and don't like. What they
    want and don't want. And most importantly, what they expect from Red
    Hat. And who knows, maybe we can even teach folks a thing or two about
    Linux along the way.

    Our thanks to IBM eServer xSeries Servers, official sponsor of the
    Red Hat Road Tour 2002.

    Details about the tour will be available on redhat.com next week.

    of running Linux-based hardware and software in enterprise computing
    environments.

    you can still participate.

    Participants will learn how companies are deploying and using Linux, as
    well as exploring Linux and open source career options. Special
    discounts on Red Hat's RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer) training and
    certification program will be offered, as well as pre-assessment, advice
    on Linux careers, and orientation on Red Hat training classes.

    TIPS AND TRICKS:
    GETTING STARTED WITH OPEN SOURCE IN EDUCATION - PART TWO

    Last month began a four-part journey to get open source software
    into a K-12 school. Some of the homework assignments were:
    - research websites
    - determine IT needs
    - compile a nice list of answers
    - ask questions
    - add even more answers
    The content of that should comprise the answers to the
    "Where are we?" and "Where should we be?" questions.

    This month: Planning.

    AFFECT CHANGE: TAKE THE RED HAT SURVEY

    A few months ago we ran a survey in Under the Brim to learn more about
    what you think of Red Hat. We received over 1000 responses and are so
    excited about what we found out that we want to learn more. This is your
    chance to put your stamp on Red Hat. Tell us what you think, and help us
    change for the better.

    Take the survey:

    ------------------------------------

    I WANT MY MP3s...(and DVDs)

    Red Hat did not ship MP3 and DVD players in our 8.0 release. If you
    thought we were just checking to see if you were paying attention,
    you're wrong. Due to conflicts between patent licensing and the
    licensing of our application source code, (MP3) support has been
    removed from applications in Red Hat Linux.

    Here's some pointers to further information:

    YOU NEED A NEW SHIRT. WE CAN HELP YOU WITH THAT.

    Don't you think it's time you retired that "mount and fsck" t-shirt?
    Your cubemates think the joke is old and the people in finance just
    think you're gross. Good news. We've just added two new t-shirts to the
    Red Hat store. Both are black and sport a small shadowman on front, big
    one on back--with a special quote from Shadowman himself. The first
    shirt says, "Hand over the code and no one gets hurt." The second,
    "You're free, now go and help the others." Your pick, but buying both
    lets you avoid doing laundry for an extra day.

    UNDER THE BRIM CONTEST 36: MAKE IT STOP

    You read about the Red Hat Road Tour 2002 in last month's UTB. Our
    contest last month asked you to send your request for why the
    tour should stop at your user group or school.

    Our winner: Talk about geek cred. Louise M and Waseem D from Yorktown
    High School in Arlington, Virgina put their plea in a Python script. We bit.
    Congratulations. In just a few weeks, Arlington High School will get a
    visit from four Red Hatters and an RV...

    And our second-place winner, Jan, who sent us a stop request from
    Pretoria, South Africa, is the winner of the 2002 Tour care package
    filled with Red Hat collectibles.

    UNDER THE BRIM CONTEST 37: 8.0 TESTIMONIALS

    We want to hear what you think of Red Hat Linux 8.0. For this
    month's UTB contest, write up your most heartfelt 8.0
    testimonial and send it to us. Tell us what you like, don't like.
    Be honest. Write it up and send it to:

    feedback@redhat.com (with the subject line: 8.0 Testimonials)

    We'll publish a selection of the reviews on redhat.com and in
    Under the Brim next month. And for the reviews we like
    best--good, bad, and ugly--we'll send you one of the new
    Red Hat t-shirts:
