Gnome The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.

"Say what? The KDE 4.6 desktop on suitable hardware is the best desktop out there. It is eminently useable, and ahead of Windows or OSX.


That is an opinion, not a fact. Every single time I've tried KDE4.x I've either had the panel go in endless crash-loop, KWM crashing, the whole desktop going unresponsive or similar stuff. It has every single time been REALLY unstable, even 4.6 which I just recently tried! Such unstability doesn't quite make it "best" in my opinion.

Wow that has never happen to me since the KDE 4.0-.4.1 days, using KDE 4.4.3 and its been really stable, more so than windows 7 64-bit. Even with those flaky fglrx drivers. Of course this could be do the fact that I use KDE under Slackware....

Well, I don't know what the issue is. I keep on trying KDE every now and then in an effort to try to "give it a chance", and every time the result is something like this. Note that I've tried it on several different hardware configurations, both with Radeon and with GeForce, and even in a virtual machine, and I've tried it with Ubuntu and OpenSuSE.

The easiest way of making KDE crash has so far been to try to resize the panel or to move it to the top of the screen where I prefer it.
