    Date: Mon, 23 Dec 2002 08:07:33 -0500
    "You know, Chandler, you being here is the best gift I could
    ask for Christmas."

    "Aww. Thanks Pheebs."

    "Ok, now where's my real present?"

    Red Hat, Inc. has a holiday gift for you - PHOEBE, a new
    beta release of Red Hat Linux.

    PHOEBE is 6 CDs of software (3 binary, 3 source), including, among
    other things:
    - the latest in bleeding-edge desktop and XFree86 technology
    - Mozilla 1.2.1, with Xft antialiased fonts
    - glibc-2.3.1, with the new Native POSIX Thread Library (NPTL),
    for performant and scalable threading

    PHOEBE is, of course, not intended for use on mission critical
    or other production systems.

    As always, we do not recommend the use of beta software on mission
    critical or production systems. In fact, we may laugh at those who
    try. Problems with PHOEBE should be reported via bugzilla, at:

    http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla

    PHOEBE can be found at redhat.com. Specifically:

    Merry Xmas to u 2 Jim

    Tell us what Phoebe is like, I dont think ill download it, maybe when it stops being beta.

    (I wrote to santa and asked for a fast internet connection - I hope i've been a good boy)

    Its better to regret something you have done than to regret something you havent done :P

    The beta is 8.0.92, so the next release will be 8.1.

    I installed it on a spare hard drive, but the fonts are wicked. Some fonts seem to be using AA and some don't. Especially the "interface fonts" in Gnome. I also noticed that the fonts where not AA in the installer. After the really nice fonts in 8.0, this is a setback. I have not seen it posted to bugzilla yet. Maybe just something with my system. I will have to boot it again tomorrow if I get time and play with it some more.

    What does this mean, any clue?
