I've been playing around.

Does any one notice that KDE is less stable than Gnome. I find Gnome
crashes less and is a lot more solid. This isn't Gnome Vs KDE debate,
just an observation.

Change distributions. I run Mandriva Linux and yet to have a crash.

I recommend you boot a rescue cd and run memtest overnight.

I'd score this a 1.25 (out of 10) on the Troll-O-Meter.

Hmm, am I feeding a troll?

Anyway, I only use KDE as in Kubuntu and yet I can compare it with Gnome.
That's because KDE does not crash, I've seen the odd application with a
problem but not KDE itself that's causing trouble.

I don't think so ChrisC has been around here before but only this year, I
think - assuming it's the same ChrisC of course!

I'm a long time KDE user with the occasional dip into Gnome. I find both
to be excellent but with a different emphasis on the type of user it's
trying to attract which keeps me anchored to KDE (or XFCE if I'm feeling in
an austere mood). As for stability - never really had a problem since KDE
1.3 (or was it 1.4 - I'm too old for such feats of memory!). I see the
occasional traceback usually coincidiing with closing an application but, as
Dirk says, I believe this to be the application not KDE.

Or flamebait?

I use both DE's on a regular base and neither of them frequently crash.
