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.
