Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

I agree with the grand-parent, you haven't demonstrated a sound approach to bug hunting. You've basically just shown that you're going to divert blame from KDE no matter what. The only solid crash-information that Thom provided was that the crash-handler crashed, and your diagnosis was "the kernel or some hardware". The fact that Thom blamed KDE was the right thing to do! Even if he's wrong, you start with the thing that crashed: if KMail crashes blame KMail first, if Dolphin crashes, blame Dolphin.

Just open up the KDE bug tracker, you'll find a bunch of reasons why applications could have crashed. You can't take bugs in KDE as a person affront to your virtue.

The KDE devs could certainly never take your "stick-your-head-in-the-sand" approach, if they want the fruits of their labour to improve.

I think you're just offended that people rag on KDE once in a while and you try to somehow balance it out by claiming there are no problems because YOU didn't see them. Then again, you rag on GNOME once in a while too; probably just a case of some confirmation bias.
