Why KDE?

I just suddenly felt an urge to right about KDE after reading troy’s recent post (Troy, your marketing fever and ideas are contagious!!). I will probably be writing about something that has been written over and over again, but let me give it my own personal flavor. So…

Why use KDE?

A. Integration done right (TM)

KDE has to be the most correctly integrated environment I’ve seen. Everything just fits and works perfectly with one another. Now, users coming from Windows are probably still traumatized from the Internet/Windows Explorer fiasco and ditch/bash KDE (specially Konqueror) because of that. I’ve seen it happen. What I would like to tell them is, “Give it another look.” KDE has triumphed where Microsoft failed. And one of the things that make this possible is KParts.
