"Recently I did an introductory "walk around" GNOME (see "A walk around the GNOME desktop") which offered the new users to Linux a look from the ground level at one of the most popular of the Linux desktops. This time around, I will do the same service to the KDE desktop. I will focus on KDE 4.5 (since that is the most recent release) with the goal of showing you just how user-friendly KDE makes the Linux desktop.

"Interestingly enough, there has always been speculation about what "KDE" stood for. Quite some time ago (circa 2000) I spoke with one of the lead KDE developers who informed me that "KDE" stood for "KDE Desktop Environment". Linux always loves its recursive acronyms.

"KDE is a complete desktop environment which means nearly all of the bundled components are fully aware of one another."
