Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

KDE 4.6 is awesome and just as stable as KDE 3.x was.

Have you tried mode? Just wondering whether I am the only one who has problems with instability there (Arch Linux). I am not too much into KDE, so if I've overlooked a warning sign or something I am sorry. It looks fantastic, but it seems to at least have a lot of rough edges.

Something else I constantly experience is Akonadi making troubles. I know you can turn it off, but wouldn't it be better to use something like BDB (or any of its variants, like Kyoto/Tokyo-Cabinet) to implement this? Reminds me of Amarok where I thought the same. A server appears to be a waste of resources, while still being slower than the mentioned alternative.
