For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.
KSimus is a KDE tool for simulation, automation, and visualization of technical processes. It is also useful for education and experiments in the scope of logical and automatic control circuits. The main feature of KSimus is the use of component libraries (packages) which makes extending KSimus easy for developers.
ADIOS boot CD is a Linux live CD based on Red Hat Linux and a 2.6 kernel, with additional support for squashfs, unionfs, and SELinux. The CD can run from RAM, USB memory stick, or use FAT/EXT files for /var, or copy/install the CD to FAT/EXT files. The user can choose from KDE or IceWM. The user can start User Mode Linux (UML) virtual machines, each of which can start X. Each of the virtual machines can be networked via virtual ethernet switches and hubs. ADIOS requires at least 128MB RAM to run X11.
Score Reading Trainer generates a randomized musical score, based on user-input variables. The keys of the keyboard are mapped to notes in a manner similar to a piano, and the user must press the correct key for each note in order to continue. As multiple notes are displayed simultaneously, it can also be used to practise pre-reading.
KSalomon is a vocabulary trainer for KDE. It is based on the "Leitner Learning System"; a card index box in which you can drop several vocabulary files. Words you know can be moved into folders where they won't be tested very often, and the words you forget will be tested more regularly. It features the ability to record/play sounds for the words, different fonts for various languages, the ability to add pictures to the words, the ability to have several possible correct answers, and configurable key bindings for special chars.
