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.

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).

I had noticed that effect!

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.

"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.

If one must drink lagers I don't think anything can beat Urquell Pils.
It comes from Plzen in the Czech Republic, the town that gave its name
to the style of beer. Its readily available in the UK.

I prefer a good, hoppy English bitter to anything else. Hook Norton or
Morland's Speckled Hen will do nicely.

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.

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.

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.
