Well, I am currently posting from drake 9 on my pos laptop. Overall, pretty clean. I think it would be my choice for newer linux people, but overall not a bad distro. The install stage was clean and simple. I think it is a decent setup overall. Redhat 8 was mostly (as i said in the other forum) mostly just an Eye-candy upgrade. There was nothing really worthwhile (for me anyway) to make me want to upgrade from 7.3, which I think is one of the best releases Redhat has came out with.
