Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

I've had the same thing happen (KDE crashes/locks up after 10-20 minutes) and that was on bare metal, Arch Linux, and Intel video hardware. I popped in an Nvidia card and even with the binary driver it would crash or lock up, so that ruled out video issues. I gave up and went back to Xfce on that machine (which has since been retired). That was less than a year ago.

And this wasn't cheap slap-together hardware. I learned a very long time ago to buy workstation-class hardware from HP, Dell and Lenovo exclusively for production machines. This was an HP business class desktop that was rock-solid under Windows and any Linux DE/WM apart from KDE.
