Qt - Introduction To KDE

KDE stands for K Desktop Environment. Qt can be significantly experienced on a KDE desktop. The Qt toolkit was used for the KDE project. Every window available on the KDE desktop is a part of the Qt design.

Actually KDE is primarily built on several technologies such as

  1. KHTML - an HTML engine
  2. Plasma - desktop and panel widget engine
  3. Phonon - multimedia framework
  4. Solid - device integration framework

On top of this the entire UI is built on the technology of KDELibs, which is in turn built on Qt.
