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.

*AGREED*...

XFCE is one of the reasons Olivier did not put his desktop environment into the mainstream as *THE* leading GTK+ based desktop. It's a real shame, but this is life and you know how people can get stubborn to not change anything. Horrible name, horrible choice and I'm sorry that it doesn't get too much attention and peoples interest.

Actually, MOUSE is a pretty good competitive name for that ugly-named desktop.
