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.

Well, you can always ask two questions, typified by:

Is pi > 3.1415 ANS yes
Is pi < 3.1415 ANS no
Is pi > 3.1416 ANS no
Is pi < 3.1416 ANS yes

and develop pi to any desired accuracy from the answer set. :-)

What do you mean by 'crashes'? KDE comprises many individual components, and
it seems a bit far fetched that so many processes would crash at once. What
application are you having problems with?

If you add a 3 I don't know if you need a + or - following.

I've used both and never noticed any particular instability in either.

I did once get into an extraordinary mess trying to run some Gnome apps
under KDE, and ended up with KDE trying to run an infinite number of
copies of Nautilus ... but that was some years ago. I haven't had
significant problems with either since.

I find KDE has slightly more useful functionality than Gnome, but it
also has more complexity and more useLESS functionality. A
trimmed-down, leaner, KDE would be better than either.

[Note: some newsgroups trimmed as my news server doesn't carry them,
and won't post to them]

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

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).

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 ..
