"On Wednesday at Fall Comdex, the backers of the KDE Linux
desktop environment are expected to band together and form a
corporate-backed group to push KDE as a viable alternative to
GNOME. The formation of the so-called KDE League is expected to
provide K Desktop Environment (KDE) with the same kind of big-named
backing as garnered by GNOME in August, when it announced a slew of
companies who united to create the GNOME Foundation."
"Many of the same companies that lent their name to the
GNOME cause are also expected to be on hand when KDE rolls out its
organization. Expected KDE League founders include Caldera, Compaq
Computer Corp., (NYSE: CPQ), Corel Corp., IBM Corp., SuSE, and
TrollTech, according to sources."
"These companies are expected to contribute to the KDE Project,
the group of hackers who have built the KDE environment, various
open-source products and technologies."
