KDE to Celebrate 15th Birthday
,----[ Quote ]
| KDE is having a global birthday party to celebrate 15 years and everyone is
| invited. Well, since we all can't actually get together in one spot, they'd
| like to inspire a bunch of parties happening simultaneously across the globe
| on October 14.
| It all began much the way Linux began, with a message to a Usenet usergroup.
| Matthias Ettrich posted, "Programmers wanted!" for a "New Project: Kool
| Desktop Environment (KDE)". The rest is history. 15 years ago Ettrich was
| looking to create an interface for endusers - the regular desktop user and he
| and his fellow developers succeeded. KDE became the most popular desktop
| environment for free Unix desktops and remained so until the rise of Ubuntu
| propelled GNOME into that position. It will be interesting to see where the
| dueling desktops end up in the coming years.
