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.

Who the hell would want to use a KDE program outside of KDE? I mean most other environments have their own alternatives, sometimes they are even better. I definitely am not going to use Amarok on OSX, or Windows. I truly don't understand what would be the point.

They should have just stuck with what they had or they could just go right ahead with Plasma as the name for the whole thing.
