What do you mean by "Crashing upon shutdown"? Do you have a bug you can point to? I also never ran into the Kded4 infinite loop when xorg was killed. Maybe I'm just better at killing xorg than you are. Also never experienced the ACPI freeze. What distro were you running? It could also be the video driver. I had terrible problems with kwin stability in the past with one video card at home, but at work it was rock solid.


Is it just me, or does there seem to be an agenda coming from "lie for Windows" types to try to prevent other people from wanting to try KDE4 in particular?

No, I wouldn't ascribe it to malice. If I hadn't looked into the causes of my problems with kde, I might have thought the same as well.

Its like anything having to do with technology: if you give up when you run into a problem, you'll just go back to what you're used to unless your forced, regardless of the cause of the problem. I'm old enough to remember the gripes tech folk had when they were forced to use Unix instead of VMS, windows instead of dos, windows instead of Macs,Macs instead of Windows,or Linux instead of Unix. Very rarely did those complaints have to do with the technical merits of the old system vs new. Its usually a matter of familiarity. If you try telling them the new system is better than the old for the use case, they often feel like you are telling them they were wrong for being comfortable.

What is it about the "lie for Linux" types that will make any old-misinformed crap up about Windows which was valid critism in about 1998, but won't listen to any criticism regarding Linux/KDE/Gnome etc?
