"Just an observation" (based on personal experience) is what is next:

Slackware 12.0 with KDE is rock solid, never crashes. I use it a lot.

I also recently have begun to and been using Debian Etch who's default
desktop is Gnome. In Etch, the few times that I used KDE it worked fine,
did not have a problem. The Gnome has not had any crash related issue or
problem.

I've not run KDE all that much in Etch (so as to compare it to the stability
that I've found in Slackware 12.0's KDE).

I've a couple 18 gig scsi hard drives. Slack 12.0 is on one. Debian Etch
is on the other. So far, Slack 12.0 gets booted more often than Etch does.

I had been a Slack only user for a few years or longer. Then I got around
to it to try/learn/use Debian just so as to get a better all around
perspective for myself of some Linux distros. I also keep/maintain CentOS
Linux on a friend's box but I don't use CentOS myself other than what it
takes for me to support my friend's machine.

Personal experience is not exactly a reliable measure. For instance when an
application crashes for me, more often than not is it a Gnome application.

It probably depends more upon whether you are using stable apps or cutting
edge and also which versions of the dependancy files are installed too.

No. The discussion got sidelined by the Nano advocates.
