Why use KDE?

,----[ Quote ]
| You will hardly find any user guide or handbook about KParts, because it
| isn’t a separate visible application. The magic of KParts happens behind the
| scenes. KParts is KDE’s component framework (for you techies out there, it is
| somewhat similar to GNOME’s Bonobo and Microsoft’s OLE). What this basically
| means is that parts (components ) of one application can be embedded in
| another application to take advantage of its features, without reinventing
| the wheel. No, you don’t put the whole application inside another
| application. You only put a part of the application, usually the core part
| which has the basic functionalities and features of that application. So what
| does this mean for the user? Lots!

[KDE 4] Plasma backgrounds

,----[ Quote ]
| Whenever the topics of background wallpapers for plasma comes up, 99% of the
| time first question is: can they be animated? Animated backgrounds would be
| cool, but the consistency with which people ask that is pretty impressive. So
| before I continue on let me just get that question out of the way: *
|
| Yes, background wallpapers can be animated.
