KDE We all know what KDE stands for, right? Unless you're new here, you'll know that it stands for the K Desktop Environment. While this certainly covers a large chunk of what KDE stands for, it has increasingly lost its meaning over the past few years. Consequently, the KDE team has decided to 'reposition' the KDE brand.

But then an experience user could easily change KDE or Windows to reflect their preferences (as they're going to be more tech savvy) so I don't see the problem.

I love the fact that KDE has a simular GUI as Windows because, as much as I might dislike other aspects of Windows, I've always liked the way how the GUI was layed out.

But I also love the fact that KDE isn't a clone of Windows. They've taken the bits they liked from the GUI and added a few things they preferred.

So while it might grate some users who are new to the system - ultimately it's still better than creating a carbon copy (as people would stick to Windows and not bother with KDE).
