KDE Software Compilation

For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.

      I've recently moved from Windows to Linux and had to try many different desktop environments. KDE is simply the best, thanks for this great project!

      May I suggest to rename this project "KDE SC", because at some time, the project people started calling themselves "KDE", and the software "KDE SC"?

      Besides this, thank you and keep up the good work!

      Simply the most powerful. the most advanced and very beautiful desktop environment. I also like it how much customizable it all is.

      Are the constant program crashes and glitches still an issue with this desktop environment?

      great desktop shell but..
      I've switched backwards and forwards between KDE and enlightenment/fluxbox for a long time now. KDE is a wonderful project and I think it's second to none in terms of features and integration.

      I hope that the 3.4.2 release provides an experience that is not as bug ridden as the 3.4.1 release. I have considered every release of KDE so far to be too frustrating to be able to use for any length of time due to constant program crashes and glitches.
