He apparently didn't say which distribution he's using, and stability
could depend on it. In my personal case I didn't remember of great
stability in anything Ubuntu-based, including Kubuntu; but it was
mostly issues of dpkg/etc. breaking into a big mess in a much faster
and easily-triggered way than Debian stable.
I think one day I should do an audit of Trinity 3.5.13 vs. KDE 3.5.10
and revert some Ubuntu patches… (I already have in mind the broken
kdesu issue you previously reported)
