The K Desktop Environment (KDE) is one of the most successful open source software (OSS) projects ever. It provides an integrated graphical user interface (GUI) for UNIX and especially for Linux and other free Unices like FreeBSD.

While it inherits the advantages of the underlying operating system (security, stability, low total cost of ownership, ...) which made Linux a favourite server platform, it adds ease-of-use, consistency and beauty to it - and a helluva lot of application. Koffice comes with all the necessary apps for office work (word processor, spreadsheet, presentation software, flow charting, ...). KDE's emailer is one of the best. Konqueror is a browser of everything - from the WWW to local files, from digital cameras to audio CDs, from the network neighbourhood to connected printers.

If you are interested in learning more about this excellent and free alternative on the desktop or if you are even interested in a business solution, don't hesitate to contact me.  I am proud to be KDE's official representative for Africa.
