I've been using KDE for at least 3 years, and I find very little in it 
to complain about. Only thing I can think of is the unfortunate interaction
of some programs (guvcview, most recently) with the operation of 
KSnapshot. Prior to that it was some other program, and prior to _that_,
KSnapshot worked OK, so I don't know what or why they're doing things 
that louse it up.

Oh, one other thing: some of the options set up in "Configure Your 
Desktop" do not survive reboot. I wish they'd fix that.

The attitude that KDE is always giving problems could result in it being 
dropped by some distros in favor of some Ubuntuism, at which
point I would just go back to Windows. I really dislike the way Windows 
operates, but i do like the Win (prior to Win8) screen paradigm,
which KDE imitates rather well.
