    Doesn't really say much about the quality of either, and even if it did, size of user base (potential bug reporters) for both projects should probably be taken into account to get meaningful data.
    And how exactly would we quantify that?

      Well that's the problem, isn't it? I'm just pointing out that bug counts can't be used as a direct measure of software quality. A project with many users will get more bug reports than a less-used project of similar complexity and quality. There are other factors like availability of help and information, ease of writing a bug report and so on but I doubt these are as relevant in this case.

        ROFL. All the frameworks are not yet imported to ohloh. So you miss all the repositories where the fun is.

          at least honton could begin to start using official numbers from kde-digest...

          • KDE 4.8+ wins!!!

            Guys, I use linux since 2011, I have already installed all types of distribution and in this period I had 6 different laptops, including AMD Enduro and Nvidia Optimus technologies. Among all tests, definitely I choose Ubuntu as distro and KDE as a graphical interface. I do not know the source-code of them, but with respect to the day-to-day use and configuration there are numerous details, which I will not specify here, that make me decide for this. For me, KDE 4.8 or higher is the best option for linux graphical interface today.

            • Still killing? It's been 20 years of killing, and it's still not done? I was expecting an obituary, or at least a Netcraft confirmation, but KDE still seems alive, what gives?

              Come on, common flu would have finished KDE off by now, what's going on?

              "Killing me softly" indeed.

                The number of gnome commits per month is trending down, too. I guess gnome is dying as well.

                  Dude, come on, no image?

                  Might that be because Gnome is already dead?

                  • No, it's because if you check here, you'll notice that under Gnome's Project Activity it says, "Not Available"

                        good to hear. I heard so many people complaing about it over the years. I tried it once, but that was some years ago. So sorry that my comment sounded so negative.
                        Perhaps years ago Kubuntu might have been problematic, but that would be before my time with it. I've been using it since 11.04 and every time I try something else, I always end up returning. Partly out of familiarity, of course -- I can make dpkg sing in ways that I don't want to reinvest the time elsewhere. But also because Kubuntu now provides the closest thing we have to a vanilla KDE experience lightly touched so that everything just works. Of course, as an admin of the Kubuntu forum, I'll admit that my position is probably not free of bias

In other words, difference between two is only in release cadence and support duration, not in the method of production.
                          Indeed. Somehow, LTS has taken on the perception of being higher quality or something similar. It isn't. The only reason to stick with LTS is that you might have some kind of corporate policy mandating it. For J. Random User, sticking with LTS means staying behind.

                            All the issues I can remember were down to Launchpad and its crappy translations, that overwrote all translations supplied by KDE, and the Strigi hiccup, that was down to a crappy upstream release policy. However, I don't know if you are updating Soprano, Akonadi, and s-d-o in sync with KDE, or if you are still freezing them; that is another HUGE source for trouble I knew about Kubuntu.

                              We now remain in sync with upstream. It's typically only a matter of a few days after a new point release that we'll have updated packages in the repos.

                              Strigi is long gone... http://vhanda.in/blog/2012/11/nepomuk-without-strigi/

                              • KDE is a POS especially if you have a nvidia card. Every time, the managers cannot handle the configuration of the binary driver. KDE = KRap.
