January 11, 2008 – A decade after KDE 1.0 helped kick-start the Linux Desktop Environment scene, the KDE team set out to change things. The result was KDE Plasma, a Desktop Environment (or multiple environments) built around re-usable, heavily customizable components. One noteworthy addition was the scalable and rotatable components (thanks in part to heavy usage of vector graphics). The end result is an environment that is fairly adaptable to a variety of form factors and resolutions.
I don't have a fun fact for KDE Plasma. Other than that the K initially stood for “Kool.” Which we talked about previously. This is now something you will never forget, and will bring up in parties to make you super popular.
