"KDE stands for the K Desktop Environment and was first released in 1998 by Matthias Ettrich, who was a student at the time. Ettrich saw a need for the Unix world to have a unified desktop environment which had a consistent look and feel, rather than just multiple applications looking and behaving however they wanted to. When it was originally conceived, KDE was written in C++ using the Qt toolkit for its graphical interface and to this day, remains true to its heritage.
