It is a highly customized version of gnome and KDE that they call bluecurve.
They still have gnome and KDE but they made them look the same. Some people love
it others hate it. As I understand it the goal was to make a standard desktop
that even your grandmother could use. If you want other features, the idea is
that you will know how to enable them or at least know how to figure out how to
enable them. The default desktop no longer has for instance 3 or 4 web browsers
It just has an icon pointing to the default browser. In this case mozilla.

As far as where to download it check the Red Hat ftp sites. I am not sure
exactly which rpms you would need though. It is part of the distro since I think
