My kde's working stable. But I'm thinking about upgrade to 3.0.x. Hmm. In Linux you can always log in by ssh. It's a very good thing. But I don't use it. It's just a matter of configuration.

it may be different in other distros, but in redhat you can not claim that system is totaly flawless in gui, especially when you put in lots of load. And I also hardly beleive that none of you has experienced any problems with gui programs in other distros like suse or debian

I use debian and is very seldomly in the gui - only thing I ever really use it for is for running netscape. I normally run in runlevel 2 and has set up runlevels 3 and 4 for the server modes I'm in (either busy with web development or with mail configurations). Runlevel 5 is as expected (gui!). Then on my server I don't even have X installed and I run a combination of my desktop runlevel 3+4 as runlevel 2 - only level ever used, don't have physical access to it - locked in a safe with the network cable sticking out - try that with an NT server.

Ok so you got my point; linux is not ready for proffesional desktop use => to replace windoze with masses

koningshoed: You are a typical linux user. ( having linux server and using windoze for everydays use )

Use Windows mostly. I have Mandrake 8.0 installed, but I am unhappy with it. It's too "newbie" for me. I'll be burning my Slackware 8.0 ISOs later on tonight. Then I'll be havin' some fun.

And when I'm in Windows, I'm constantly trying to learn about Linux. It's addictive.
