Why Knoppix chose KDE

So why did the Knoppix team choose KDE over Gnome and others? According to Tom Chance, a lot of it has to do with the fact Klaus could work with a number of terminals on one screen. What, you thought there was going to be some long, drawn out story about this came to pass? :o)

The tenth and final day of the KDE World Summit 2004 – aKademy – presented visitors with a second opportunity to learn more about some of KDE’s key technologies, and to hear of how KDE has been successfully deployed by others. A track on groupware and collaboration tools gave developers the chance to show off their work, whilst a track on success stories turned the tables, allowing visitors and developers alike to hear of KDE being used in deployments ranging from 10,000 desktops to the famous Live CD Knoppix.
