The other thing to remember is that the `easy to use' parts are
maintained by third party vendors.  There is no reason why the
NetBSD OS cannot maintain its traditional level of stability,
regardless of the GUI developments.  If third party software is
stable, then great.  If not, then as individual users we can decide
whether to install it.  Given NetBSD's userbase, I do not think
that the base system will suffer any loss of stability---even if
KDE/Gnome are crash prone and buggy.
