Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

Just curious, but what apps are you running when you get kernel panics and lock-ups in KDE4?

I use KDE4.4.4 each and everyday and only shut it down when I need to move my laptop on the weekends.

I haven't had a single lock-up and i don't think I've ever even seen a kernel panic in the 11 years I've been using linux. Oh wait, yes, I saw one once when I tried to compile my own kernel.

I'm not saying KDE is the best, but it is what I prefer. This is a major reason I use linux, because I can choose what I like to use.
