As a side note. I dont run Gnome or Kde. I run a rather antique version of
Afterstep(v1.0), use Mozilla(and konqueror<sp?>, as Kmail pops it up), and
kmail(best gui mail client I have yet to find in linux) mostly.
I do however try them out every couple of months or so to see how they are. I
am very envious of near system wide Anti-aliased fonts. I think kde is the
closest to reliable on mac so far. I just have never found gnome to be all
that stable on x86, much less ppc. Of course my requirments are a bit
diferent from your standard user...so grain of salt(my req's usually involve
and easy to use pager with 12 desktops with anywhere from 2 to 10 xterms open
to numerous servers. not to mention extranious progs like mail, browsing,
edit sesions, monitors. I dont reboot cause I want up time on my work
station...its cause I dont want to re-establish 50 ssh sessions to a bunch of
remote servers. So, grain of salt.
that said, most would find kde or gnome fairly useable and reliable. as well
as most other programs(cept maybe dvd stuff).
