KDE is a contemporary desktop environment for Unix systems. At the same time, it is a free software project that has been developed by hundreds of software programmers from all over the world.

The full-form of KDE is ” K Desktop Environment .” Both KDE source code and software have been freely available to be used by public.

The primary benefit of KDE is the modern graphical user interface ( GUI ) that it provides for Unix workstations. While using Unix systems is not so easy for basic users, it is difficult to operate, but using KDE even an average user can easily work in a Unix system.

In addition to its modern interface, KDE includes many user-friendly features, such as an application help system, and standardized menus and toolbars as well. Along with this, it supports the abiility to customize the interface so that many different types of skins or themes can be used in it.

Another important aspect is the K Desktop Environment, it is used for framework development, which is mostly used by software engineers for KDE to develop programs.

Since a desktop environment is as useful as the applications available for it, it is also important that developing a software is not that much of a difficult process for the environment.

In such a situation, the KDE application development framework is designed to help the programmers so that they can develop robust applications in a simple and efficient way. As a result, KOffice developed and hundreds of high-quality programs were created for KDE.
