Both organizations have been fostering a great number of KDE software users in China. [b]The meeting[/b] At the meeting, Rick Xing, Director of Linux Desktop research and development at Red Flag, gave us a detailed introduction on the history of KDE. He technically clarified the development history of KDE software, from KDE 1.0 to the latest Plasma workspaces, applications and KDE Platform.
