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.
Coherence is a set of DLNA/UPnP devices, like MediaServer and MediaRenderer. In addition, it includes a well-designed framework to extend other applications with DLNA/UPnP functionality. It also has an emerging DBus API, enabling these applications to participate in digital living networks. It supports Playstation 3 (PS3), XBox, and many other devices.

STPsim is an application that simulates and visualizes switches using the Spanning Tree Protocol. It features a GUI to build and control a custom network topology. A VPython frontend visualizes virtual switches and network cables in a 3D environment. To visualize STP-states, switches and ports change colors and captions in real time.
