19 with a huge number of applications written for it and a huge amount of users.
20 It is based on the <application>Qt</application> framework.</para>

22 <para>There are two versions of <application>KDE</application>. KDE4
23 is a mature version that combines libraries and the desktop environment
24 into one set of packages and has numerous appplications that can be

26 5 or KF5, are separate from the desktop environment called KDE Plasma 5.
27 Both envionments can be installed, but Plasma is not yet considered
28 stable.</para>
