KDE is an international technology team that creates Free Software for desktop and portable computing. Among KDE’s products are a modern desktop system for Linux and UNIX platforms, comprehensive office productivity and groupware suites and hundreds of software titles in many categories including Internet and web applications, multimedia, entertainment, educational, graphics and software development. KDE software is translated into more than 60 languages and is built with ease of use and modern accessibility principles in mind. KDE4’s full-featured applications run natively on Linux, BSD, Solaris, Windows and Mac OS X.
The KDE 4.0 Desktop and applications deserve a closer look. The pages below provide an overview of KDE 4.0 and give some examples of its associated applications. Screenshots of many components are included. Be aware that this is just a small sample of what KDE 4.0 offers you.
Want to run KDE-applications on Windows?
The team of "KDE Windows Project" has made it possible. They have made a KDE-Installer for installing KDE apps under windows, but this installer supports only Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003. Vista support is underway.
KDE on Windows is mostly in an alpha state, so not suitable for day to day use yet. If you’re interested in helping to track some bugs, get some of your favourite KDE apps working correctly, you can start here. For some help join IRC channel #kde-windows on freenode.
