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
- 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.
