"The K Desktop Environment (KDE) 2.0 product -- aka Kopernicus -- is designed to make Linux and Unix desktops easier to use."

"KDE Team officials, in a news release issued Monday, said that the hundreds of open-source developers who worked on Kopernicus basically re-engineered the KDE 1 environment."

"Kopernicus includes the Konqueror Web browser and file manager; the first release of KOffice, an integrated office suite; KParts component object tools; and other elements aimed at both developers and end users. Kopernicus also includes more than 100 applications for games, graphics, administration, and utilities."

"KOffice consists of a spreadsheet application (KSpread), a vector drawing application (KIllustrator), a frame-based word-processing application (KWord), a presentation program (KPresenter), and a chart and diagram application (KChart)."
