In addition to porting the core KDE libraries and applications, developers are also porting popular KDE-based software like the Amarok audio player and the KOffice productivity suite.

Bringing free software to proprietary systems isn't just about converting people to free software.

It's often touted that open development brings us better software. And guess what; it's true! Hence, being able to use free software on prop. systems isn't just about convincing people that free software is a viable alternative - it's also important (to me, at least, already a free software "convert" for a long time) that even if I've chosen a prop. operating sytem for whatever reason, I can still use the software that I like.
