The KDE League
is a group of developer
s and manufacturer
s who have decided to throw their weight behind the K Desktop Environment (KDE
) for Linux
. The KDE League was announced at COMDEX
in Las Vegas
Members include Compaq, Corel, SuSE (my favorite distro), MandrakeSoft, TrollTech, Borland, Caldera, IBM, HP, and Fujitsu-Siemens Computers.
The League has no technical development duties. The KDE League was formed for marketing and promotional issues, whereas the GNOME Foundation has a committee for development of the GNOME desktop environment.
