Well done if it's that buggy

Don't get me wrong, I like gnome. But if it's causing 1/3 of his bugs then Pat's right to drop it. Maybe with the spare time he can include MPlayer and OpenOffice. To all those saying he should drop KDE too, read his reasons. He's not dropping gnome because he prefers kde, he's dropping it because it's such a pain for him to build and so buggy. If he has the same problems with any package, I'm confident he'll drop it.
