    Fedora Core 3 Test 2 was recently released and includes them, havn't heard of any others though (at least with Gnome 2.8, KDE 3.3.0 shouldnt be too tough to find). Of course, Gentoo is all set up for them too.

    I could be mistaken, but I believe Ubuntu Linux uses Gnome 2.8.

    Ubuntu does indeed use Gnome 2.8, but it doesn't support KDE at all (though I think you can use the standard Debian package.)

    Dropline has 2.8 cvs available. 2.8 proper should be available soon.

    actualy, Gentoo is not really supporting Gnome 2.8 yet, the ebuilds are still hardmasked, you can get them, but you have to unmask all the dependancies also

    go to http://distrowatch.com/ and watch the announcements about new distro versions in the news section. chances are a lot of the newer distro versions have kde 3.3 and gnome 2.8. the only one i know off hand other than the ones people before me listed is SLAX, a slackware based linux live cd with kde 3.3.

    *edit* arch has kde 3.3
