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.
PasTmon (Passive Application Response Time Monitor) passively monitors your application servers, measuring and reporting user response times, throughput and congestion. It currently works with HTTP, telnet, rlogin, rsh, FTP (control channel), SMTP, POP3, and IRC. Measurements are recorded in a PostgreSQL database and are presented graphically via a PHP Web front-end using R statistical analysis scripts to create the plots.
nexB OpenAssets is a tool for inventorying, managing, and monitoring applications, software, hardware, networks, and generally any IT asset.

Running on a Linksys WRT54G or compatible router powered by the Linux firmware OpenWRT, Wi-viz places the wireless apparatus into a special monitor mode that doesn't interfere with the operation of the router. Here it sits, examining all wireless packets coming into the interface and extracting valuable information about the surrounding wireless infrastructure. With an intuitive Web interface, it exposes this information in a simple, easy-to-use, self-arranging graphical format.
PACT is a LAMP-based application to manage connections and circuits for business partners, affiliates, and branch offices. The system tracks telecommunications circuits so that a company keeps track of which circuit is used for what purpose. The system also allows you to do cost comparison with average industry cost for a specific circuit type. This is to ensure you are not paying your service providers more than others. The system provides many graphical reports to analyze circuit types, cost comparison, partners, and so on.
