Fedora Core "KDE 4 is seen by many to be the next big step on the free software desktop, while others think releasing 4.0 in its current condition was misleading and a mistake. Either way, it's an innovative release and inline with Fedora's goal of providing the latest and greatest free software it is set to be the default KDE environment in the next major release of Fedora. We caught up with two members of the KDE SIG to talk about the work they're doing to get it ready for release, their own opinions on the software and what they think about the progress made by Fedora in getting over its GNOME centric reputation."

"""
Then you're using the wrong distro.

I know, I know! It's obviously a problem with my configuration. On this machine and that. And on this distro and that.

And if the kids only showed up *after* your KDE4 installation... have you checked that they are signed with the proper keys? ;-)

Excellent! So we're in agreement... ;)

I'm a little suspicious. I first met KDE4 briefly six or seven months ago, and now suddenly I'm living with it and these new dependencies. The math doesn't add up, so I've sent the keys in for verification, since I don't remember signing them. Could have been the coronas, but I need to know for sure... ;)

So tell me, how is it that we should take your word about KDE's frequent crashes as granted and generally true? Maybe we should take the same truth pills you take. Other than that, believe it or not, it's not just you who uses KDE, 24/7, and I find such opinions somewhat nerving.

Never would I say any long preaches about KDE's superior stability, since I have seen some installs that crashed more than a crash test dummy, but I've seen and experienced the opposite much more frequently. What I can tell for certain is, that months can pass me by without any crashes whatsoever.

You can believe that at least that much as that
I know, I know!

Rebuild with debug and post a bug, otherwise shut up. Don't piss on other people work you are using for free!

I use kde4 apps in my kde3 installation, checkout kdesvn-build it is really easy if you are not afraid of compiling. I'm waiting for kmail & amarok to get ported, then I switch to kde4 for good (e.g. remove kde3 packages).
