No/No/No/No. I'd say it is easier to install KDE than Gnome. There are KDE CD's for KDE, and there is CD1 out of dozens which contains Gnome (some people don't know that). KDE installs fine, Gnome needs to download many packages during installation. Gnome is always broken in the development version (Sid), KDE always works fine. Once there is a new KDE version, it will be uploaded to Sid as fast as possible (day 1 most of the time), Gnome always needs time.Originally Posted by Jade
You should read about the way Debian works. Testing is not a distribution to work with. Testing is automated, it gets the packages which are working on all architecturs and do not have open bugs on Sid. Sid is usable for advanced users. Wine is always the latest version in there.The same pathetic excuse was used every time. WINE is not stable enough to be in TESTING.
You're right, it's no surprise. KDE 4.x still has some bugs and Lenny is already in a freeze state, and Debian/stable has to be really, really stable. No one knows how KDE 4.1 will perform when it's done, but Debian wants software that is tested for some time now.They decided not to include KDE 4,... no surprise there.
