I've used grip and gaim for a long time without problems (usually
I started off with KDE when I switched from Windows, but I copped too
much as far as segfaulting goes, so I switched to Gnome. I wouldn't know
what KDE is like these days.
Now I run minimal gnome desktops. Everything is stable. Rock solid.
Stability has more to do with external factors. Hardware compatibility
is one, and also I believe that many recommends could be included as
dependencies, while others would barely make the grade as suggests.
I discovered this when establishing what composed a stable base to carry
applications like Galeon. A package, not listed as a dependency, that
would appear to be almost unrelated would convert Galeon from a Walrus
trying to fly, to a stable application.
Get in and play a little. It's amazing what you find out.
