Gratuitous flaming?  In my experience, he is absolutely correct, at least
for Gnome and E run together.  Crashes and core dumps and seg faults are why
I now run KDE and kwm.  Gnome/E was, and so far as I know, still is too
unstable for me to use on a daily basis.

Now, having said that, I do think it is *very* promising, and I am sure they
will get the bugs worked out.

IMHO, pointing out that something still has problems and isn't quite
polished yet doesn't qualify as "gratuitous flaming".

Just my .02...
