I've found fedora to be mostly stable, but I have one minor problem with
13, when logging out, (KDE), the logout sound is garbled. That said, the
new KNetworkmanager is the business, simplifying network configuration
immensely, I'd recommend folks to try it. As for KDE, I've been using it
since Fedora core 2, and apart from the initial KDE 4 release, which I
delayed due to instability reports, it's served me well. Oh, by the way,
KDE 4 development is made even simpler with the addition of KDevelop 4,
even if the use of cmake seems a pain, I can assure you with a little
effort you'll be fine. Related to that I should mention the many useful
developments in the Qt cross platform development kit are also pleasing
to this C++ geek.
