KDE on Cygwin is the port of Qt and KDE to Windows using Cygwin, the POSIX emulation layer for Windows, and the Cygwin XFree86 server.
We think that KDE is a great desktop and has the opportunity to be a big player in the 'desktop environment' area.
Currently Qt 1.45, 2.3.1, 3.0.4, 3.1.1, 3.2.3 and KDE 1.45, 2.2.2, 3.1.1 and 3.1.4 have been ported and are of beta quality.

 KDE - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
KDE is developed in conjunction with KDevelop, a software development suite, and KOffice, an office suite.
KDE 4 will be a major revision of KDE, based on the version 4 series of Qt.
However, a usability report [6] evaluating a customized version of KDE 3.1 showed, as early as 2003, that the users were quickly familiar with KDE, enjoyed it and were able to accomplish the proposed task as quickly as with Windows XP.

 Ars Technica: The K Desktop Environment - Page 1 (3/99)
KDE provides a complete desktop environment, including a file manager, a window manager, a help system, a configuration system, uncountable tools and utilities, and an ever increasing number of applications, including but not limited to mail and news clients, drawing programs, a postscript and a dvi viewer and so forth.
Personally, I believe that KDE 1.1 is a modestly extensible, quick, and stable environment, and I think you'll see from this review that KDE is putting a face on Linux that's bridging the gap between so-called established, "easy to use" OSes--like Windows and the MacOS--and Linux, the mythically evil, CLI-based realm of pain and suffering.
KDE was built with, and requires, 'Qt' (KDE 1.1 requires Qt 1.42), a toolkit that some users find suspicious on account of its "commercialability." The fear had been that someday the developers of Qt would use their "ambiguous" license as a long arm into your pockets.

 Gentoo Linux Documentation -- The KDE Split Ebuilds HOWTO
Finally, installing all of KDE makes sense if you want to explore the available packages or are setting up a multi-user environment; however, most people use only some of the 300+ KDE apps available.
KDE 4 will (as far as we can tell now) adopt a completely new build system, which among other things will greatly reduce the time its equivalent of a make -f admin/Makefile.common;./configure will take.
KDE module subdirs can have interdependencies between them, require a particular build order, require another dir to be present even if it does not have to be installed, and so forth.

 JLP's Blog: JLP's KDE 3.5 Previews - Part 1
Every year, during the summer holidays, I regularly download the source code of the new version of KDE desktop that is in the works and compile and test it.
KDE will now also show a special dialog of possible actions when some media is inserted.
I hope the KDE team also improved kicker's transparency capabilities, as the Tray on my 3.4.1 system has this bad habit of not starting properly when transparency is enabled (it's fine after some kind of refresh event takes place).

 KDE at opensource encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
Like many open source/free software projects, KDE is primarily a volunteer effort, although various companies, such as Novell (in the form of SuSE), Trolltech, and Mandrake employ developers to work on the project.
KDE was founded in 1996 by Matthias Ettrich, then at a student at the University of Tuebingen.
Both KDE and GNOME now participate in Freedesktop.org, an effort to standardise Unix desktop interoperability, although there is still some freindly competition between them.

 KDE Themes
KDE is installed on a Linux (or UNIX-oid) machine in a directory tree, typically under /opt or /usr/local -- this needs to be identified by the environment variable KDEBASE so that KDE knows where to find all its components.
KDE is internationalised; this means it can display menus and online help in any language for which appropriate configuration files exist.
KDE applications also get their menu entries from files stored in share/locale/localeID/LC_MESSAGES/progname.mo, where progname is the name of a program; for example, the file share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/kpanel.mo provides messages for kpanel to display in its menus and dialogs when the French locale is in use.

 Gentoo Linux Documentation -- The KDE Configuration HOWTO
The KDE Project is a free software project dedicated to the development of KDE, an open source graphical desktop environment for Linux and Unix workstations.
The KDE project releases new versions of its desktop environment as a set of about 16 big packages, each containing many applications (thus they are called "monolithic"), so you need to decide which of these packages you want to install.
KDE 3.4 reads its settings from the directory /home//.kde3.4, and the first time you run KDE 3.5 a directory named /home//.kde3.5 will be created by migrating the settings in the 3.4 directory and will be then used to store preferences and data.

 KDE - SWiK
KDE as a project also encompasses a suite of applications to work natively under the desktop environment and stay consistent with the style and user interface of KDE, these include the suite of applications in KOffice and the integrated development environment KDevelop.
In the past, KDE has attracted some criticism for its use of the Qt toolkit, which was not released under open source licensing conditions, however it is now released under the GPL, so that GPL compatible applications may use it.
In comparison to GNOME, KDE is considered by many to be closer to the user interface of Microsoft Windows, whereas GNOME is considered to be more unique or closer to OSX, depending on the configuration.

With apologies to Public Enemy, but KDE has now got recognition of its usability, in that KDE 3 officially meets ISO 9241.
Usability in KDE continues to progress through a mixture of expert advice, as was used in producing the 'Kickoff' menu for openSUSE 10.2, and grassroots participation in usability improvements.

 Application Development Trends - KDE 3.3 Beta ships

KDE is developing into a more mature project, Staikos said, so not as much has changed in this version as in previous releases, where there were almost too many new features to list.
KDE developers were invited to a recent GNOME conference in Norway to speak and work on interoperability, Staikos said.

 NewsForge | KDE 4 promises radical changes to the free desktop
As the dust settles from aKademy 2005, the annual KDE conference, it's a good time to take a look at what the KDE developers are working on.
Just as KDE 3 brought major transformations in that architecture, developers are looking to KDE 4 to transform the desktop experience and enable a surge in third-party application development.
For users looking for more tangible changes in KDE 4, Plasma is a project to design and implement an entirely new desktop shell, combining the desktop (including wallpaper and icons), the panel and its applets, and desktop applets like SuperKaramba into a coherent and innovative vision.
