"When did KDE hit? About this time last year. KDE has been around for a while, but never actually made a real attempt to break into the mainstream of operating environments for *NIX's."

"I remember when I first heard of someone else actually running KDE. I took a double-take because I had no idea it had become such a prominent player in the sea of operating environments for *NIX."

"What can KDE do to improve over an already brilliant operating environment? Add tons of new features and support for the latest QT libraries. Combine that with a slick, new file manager and full support for XFree86 4.0 and you've got yourself gold-that is, if they play their cards right."

"It's still in beta, but nearing final. The buzz isn't exactly huge now, but it will be. Gnome 1.2 was just released, Enlightenment 0.17 is nearing final, and KDE is on its way. It looks like KDE will have to do something truly extraordinary to break through the cloud that Gnome has created."
