I use KDE 4.5.2 daily. The only crash I've had involves trying to ge Google Gadgets to load. Each time the window opens, it crashes.
the only other misbehavior I've had involves the clock widget. A few times, it's disappeared and the seocnd hand was ht eonly thing visible. Logging off and back on seemed to correct things.
The only thing I get confused about in E17 is how to kill a process that hangs. In KDE, it's a matter of doing a Ctrl, Alt, Esc. When Skull and crossbones pop up, place over frozen app and kill. Or, hit Ctrl, Esc and pick the frozen app from the window list.
How is this accomplished in E17?
