Hey marti, remember the last time you started throwing around unfounded
insults to posters here? Yes. You had to apologise. Unless you KNOW
someone is trolling then have the good decency to STFU. No one cares who
think is a troll or not. Save it for COLA.

To the OP - yes, I did indeed find KDE less stable than Gnome - but the
last time I tried it was over a year ago. I also found it generally
kludgier and over stuffed with useless features that personally I don't
need or want. Gnome does exactly want I want it to do - provide a clean
stable desktop from which I can select the applications I need to do
real work. A lot of people rave about Konqueror but frankly I hated it -
it is trying to be too many things to too many people.

And don't forget you can always use Gnome but still run your favourite
KDE apps too.

Perhaps, but then again, I do find it difficult to run KDE3 without
hitting constant sigsegv's

I thought you guys turned up your noses at anything except Trappist or
Abbaiale beers.

I was happy to drink Jupilier (especially in the Falstaff) when I was
working in Brussels but a Belgian friend classed anything that wasn't
Trappist or Abbaile as "industrial beer" and wouldn't touch it. I also
liked Chimay Bleu a lot.

Oh, that's EASY.
It's exactly...

Not really, we like all of them... :-)

Well thats a bit snobby if you ask me!
It's also the first time I'm confronted with such a point of view and I
must say that your friend is talking crap.

We don't look down upon industrially produced beers, only the quality of
the liquid matters (and taste is debatable...)
Some trappists and abbey beers are also produced on an industrial scale
you know.

And last but not least: if you go out and only drink Duvel, Chimaym or
Chimay Blue for instance you'll get quite ****ed up in the end but with
normal beers it's easier to move larger quantities! :-p

Thanks for the correction. BTW, I didn't say I agreed with him! I have
many happy memories of sitting with friends, drinking Jupiler,
especially outside the beer tent at a model flying meeting on the air
force firing range up the road from Hasselt (at Heltcheren? - its been a
while).

That has been my experience. KDE is .. flaky. For any job that requires a
computer to work 24 / 7, the clear choice is GNOME. KDE is pretty, and more
customizable .. and, I genuinely like KDE better, but GNOME is where I do my
work ..
