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.

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

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

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

It's called xfce

(personally I use None Of The Above, just fluxbox + command line, but I
had a play with xfce recently and it seems nice enough).

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

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 ..

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.

Such mystical, transcendental questions have no solution. It's like asking,

XFCE is GTK+ based so is more a cut-down version of Gnome rather than
the QT-based KDE.

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.
