Where KDE is going – Part 1

Today our technology goes much further than the humble beginnings in 1996, when we started out building a ‘Desktop Environment’. KDE today has many hundreds of active developers. They make not only a ‘desktop’ (Plasma Desktop) but also a variant for tablets (Plasma Active) and TVs (Plasma Media Center); Plasma Netbook is already 5 years old!

Meanwhile, the KDE applications have gone beyond simple clocks and calculators – we have a full office suite, mail and calendaring, video and image editors and much more.
