Dear all,

let me briefly summarize my experiences with Michaels KDE:
 + It's very nice!			:)
   I didn't encounter significant crashes so far. Almost everything
   behaves as expected.
 + I only have some minor issues to report:
   - The key combination Ctrl-Z in a shell (e.g. in xterm or konsole) which
     suspends a foreground job doesn't work.
   - kpilotDaemon crashes after each HotSync and thus needs to be
     restarted manually.
   - kcalc is missing.
   - The audio players from kdemultimedia (noatun, juk) don't really
     work. They only produce noise on the speakers, but don't play MP3's.
   - Some of my colleagues reported strange behavior of kopete. They
     told me that they don't see sent and incoming ICQ messages in the chat
     window. However, I was unable to reproduce this.
 + Since 1.5 weeks, my colleagues and I exclusively use Michaels KDE. It
   runs stable on my very own desktop machine (Blade 1000) as well as in
   our SunRay environment.
 + I'm regularly using kmail, kate, korganizer, kgpg, kpilot, konsole,
   konqueror, kopete, the KDE printing system (CUPS), kssh and others,
   and (almost) everything really works find.

I just can encourage you to use this piece of software.
