KDE 4.2 is very stable for me.  I've found, however, that using r1 of Qt
4.4.2 has some issues with KDE4.2.   But, using the latest release of
Qt4.4.2 fixes all of that.  Mine has been rock solid since the release.

But then, I built mine from source instead of the RPMs.

I will still say KDE4.2 is damn good and more useful (to me anyway) than
GNOME.
