The idea for KDE came to student Matthias Ettrich in 1996 and was born out of his frustration with the Unix operating system. He was frustrated that none of the applications looked or behaved in similar ways. He was right to be concerned; that has always been a major hurdle to the acceptance of a Unix-based operating system on a wide scale. If it wants to get out of the land of servers and super nerds it needs to be easier to understand and use.
KDE aims to provide applications that look and feel the same across many platforms, thus making it easier to use a safer, faster operating system like Linux and not tie yourself down to something bloated and riddled with bugs like Windows. In 1998 the first KDE desktop environment was released and a group of programmers had sprung up working on applications for the concern.
