or maybe it's because it doesn't? I haven't had any stability problems with kde4 for a long time now. Heck, I even have a 7 year old laptop (768Mb RAM) that runs it reasonably well. The only program I can remember crashing is Rekonq and it does indeed crash a bit more often than it should.

Use it only with caution still.

Not having a 1.0 version number is no excuse for crashing.
On the other hand, Arora crashes about as much for me so maybe it's a Webkit thing or something else.
