    that article is bullshit. The core of Linux is very stable -- that's why it's so popular for server applications. However, the GUIs like KDE and Gnome are not stable -- that's why I can't use it daily... It crashes ALL THE TIME.

    I didn't actually read the article, I just wanted to start a discussion about KDE 4 applications on Windows.

    GNOME in my experience is extremely stable. I've had nautilus disappoint me just a few times, long times ago.

    I don't use KDE, but I use some KDE applications, such as Kate, my favorite text editor ever.

    Windows is getting the KDE web browser Konqueror, file browser Dolphin, office suite Koffice, music player Amarok (my favorite in the world, also) and more. This is a lot of very good stuff! Hopefully it will get the burning software K3b too, because I have never come across such an imensely useful free burning suite.

    I just tried this on my brothers computer, not something I would recommend. Extremely buggy. But when it gets there, this shit should make an impact on things!

    One positive thing that struck me is how beautiful Qt is on Windows, how well KDE apps fit in. They look more beautiful than Windows, but still fit in more than reasonably.

    Windows isn't going anywhere...so "saving" it is a poor choice of words.
