KDE already works perfectly well without crashing or bogging down the system.

It is just that KDE SC 4.8 does an even better job in this regard than previous releases did.


I do not use KDE so I cannot comment on stability. The primary reason that I do not use it though is because I find it bogs down my system. It is easily the heaviest of the desktops (eg. KDE, GNOME, XFCE, LXDE, Enlightenment, stand-alone WMs). I have tried every version up until 4.7. I will give 4.8 a try as well at some point.

I am glad it works for you but, given the relative performance of KDE, I do not think that you can objectively call it snappy.
