    Here is one more:

    Alright here is what u do to reproduce this, open the kde 4 konsole as an example, on the title bar next to the application name where there is an icon on the title bar of the running application.

    Clicking on it opens a menu with options for that window but if u keep on clicking on that icon on the title bar very rapidly the application just crashes

    Novell made the mistake of delivering KDE-4 as the default for KDE in 11.0
    on the LiveCD, and now they're gonna suffer for it.

    What do u mean waste time? The only way kde 4 will improve is if ur report bugs.

    I have KDE4 which is an problem itself. I ran 4.0.4 but found it hardly usable. 4.0.82 in the buildservice is much better already imho but I still think I will run back to Gnome once again. I try KDE often and always feel like coming home when returning to good-old-gnome (i just don't get that SLAB thing, my what is That, why do I need a popup to run apps?)

    That said I found nvidia not playing nice with KDE4 in general nor with 2.6.25/2.6.26rc and compiz and KDE4 is not great either, kwin effects are slightly more stable.

    the KDE4 panel is a flickering mess for me with lost icons, clocks disappearing, GTK apps looking silly. I also would like to loose the yellow turd in the upper corner and have a normal dragable, selectable desktop again with normal dekstop icons that are not widgets in themselves.

    I do love dolphin and gwenview though, they are the single most important reason for me to use KDE4 at all. I even use dolping under gnome it is SO much better then nautilus will ever be.

    All the bug reports I've read say stuff like: "fixed in 4.1"
    and "fixed in 4.2". I've got a bootable Debian-experimental partition running
    KDE 4.1, which is still missing basic functionality vs 3.5.

    So, when I see KDE 4.2 come into the update-repo, I'll take a look again on SUSE.
    If it allows me to create an application-shortcut on my desktop, and
    has kweather working, and allows me to add stuff to systray, I might
    give it chance. Until then, it's totally broken, in my view.

    Kde 4.1 will be out in 9 to 10 days then right? So u think I should wait till then before I go back to 3.5.9?

    Very interesting you guys. I have a broken DVD of 11 -- waiting for a new DVD -- but I have a just-working version of 11.0 and KDE4 going in the interim. And I was a bit depressed because KDE4 sucks as not useful for the work place. So I might have to switch to Gnome I thought. But it's good to know that in a years time, from what you're saying, it might be useful for folk like me who want to use it for doing work rather than just for the sake of bling.
