KDE Rebrands, Introduces KDE Plasma Desktop

November 25th, 2009 11:59 admin

Jiilik Oiolosse writes “The KDE community has killed the term K Desktop Environment (previously the Kool Desktop Environment). ‘KDE’ had previously ambiguously referred to both the community, and the complete set of programs and tools produced by the KDE community which together formed a desktop user interface. This set of tools, including the window manager, panels and configuration utilities, which KDE terms a ‘workspace,’ will now be shipped under the term ‘KDE Plasma Desktop.’ This allows KDE to ship a separate workspace called ‘Plasma Netbook,’ and independently market the various KDE applications as usable in any workspace, whether it be the Plasma Desktop, Windows, or XFCE.”
