Linux Ever year, Linus Torvalds goes on vacation to Australia, during which he usually also visits linux.conf.au. During his stay this year he gave an interview to ComputerWorld, in which he talked about the success of point releases and the important topic of file systems in Linux, which is quite an active field today with ext4 and Btrfs. He also gave some insights into why he switched away from KDE, moving to GNOME instead, and he shares his thoughts on Windows 7.

Sounds like a problem with your distro. I've used archlinux with kde4 without a single crash in months of leaving kde 4.1 running.

Hm, archlinux. Maybe I should try that. However, the OpenSuSE LiveCD had mostly the same bugs as I reported about Fedora (grey window covering the desktop etc.). Anyway, I would never use SuSE, because frankly YaST is crap. Its freaking slow and does not expose options I usually have in the kde control center provided by guidance (not a Fedora extension to the control center!). So SuSE actually removes functionality from the control center to replace it with much much slower, crappier and uglyer tools. (WTF?) At least it was that way the last time I tried it (I think that was a KDE 4.1 LiveCD).
