How many of you use KDE as your Desktop?
« on: January 30, 2006, 09:16:41 am »

We are trying to estimate the popularity of K Desktop Environment amongst Coppermine users. This is basically to guess if it is worthwhile to create a Coppermine Desktop client for KDE.
This desktop application will allow users to upload multiple files from their KDE Desktop to their Coppermine galleries. It will also include client side resizing for large files, Fail safe upload resuming and some more gooddies.

So click the above button if you use KDE.

What Abbas really meant was that any one not using KDE is considered as sub normal ;)

I use KDE at work but I wouldn't be doing much photo uploads while there... I guess that makes me a little bit above sub normal? :D

News flash: you don't have to use KDE to use a KDE program. Period. Here, load any desktop environment from Xfce to TWM to Fluxbox to Window Maker as your desktop, then pop open a console and type "kicker". Ta-da, a KDE panel+menu with full access to KDE programs without running any other parts of the KDE desktop environment. Even have screenshots of same in my X window manager guide - this link is to the "TWM" section and the second screen shot down not only shows KDE's panel running on it, but the Gnome and Xfce panels as well. Anyway, I frequently use "KPOVmodeler", the front-end to POVray, from my Fluxbox desktop, for instance, and I just link kpovmodeler itself from my Fluxbox menu.

Now, outside of this, KDE *is* a very popular desktop, included in most GNU/Linux distros, and is even present in the BSD and Open Solaris worlds, so I wouldn't knock the idea at all. But it isn't very popular with the kind of power user who'd have tons of windows with graphics tasks open, because natch, it's also the *slowest* desktop. Even Gnome beats KDE in speed by a wide margin, and developing the plug-in for Gnome in the GTK library would certainly be just as viable, since Gnome programs again can run in any desktop...
