Well KDE 4 has got some weird errors, did anybody try to add 2 or more keyboard layouts? Like when you have got german + us layout then you can switch with a flag symbol. In theory thats work, but when you run for example Firefox then you can not press AltGr (right Alt) + Q to get the @ in german layout. That was in all 4.2.x releases i tried, did not try 4.3 yet.
That's why I prefer clean QT environment, but it's almost impossible to get rid of Gtk yet.
What seg faults and missing features? It seems like KDE 4.2 already had more features than gnome has ever had.
BTW im running Amarok 2.1 beta2~ and it already consumes less than half the memory that Amarok 2.0.x did (~45mb)
Progress is awesome and KDE is definitely leading the way at the moment (though konqueror is bit behind the times, but it's getting there at least hopefully). Frankly can't wait what kind of disaster gnome 3.0 will be...I think it will teach a good lesson to all kde 4.x (especially to .0) bashers...
So I'm using my shiny new KDE 4.3 desktop right now. Seems awesome so far. Lots of little things seem more polished.
Also seems pretty stable for a beta, but I've not used it for a long enough period to really tell I guess.
I'll even try and give Konqueror another go as my day-to-day webbrowser, though experience says I'll probably switch over to firefox in a few days again. :P
I still don't understand why so much of KDE3 had to be gutted and reimplemented from the ground up. Is it going to be this way with KDE 5 or will the APIs be friendly enough that applications can be migrated without the rewritten from scratch feel that's just now starting to diminish a year+ after release?
Yep, it's already been stated by Trolltech that Qt 5 wont be such a big redesign as QT 4 was.
