SUSE

KlyDE, a light weight KDE experience was announced recently, there is a lot to know about this new project. We reached out to Jos Poortvliet, openSUSE community manager and one of the core team members of the KlyDE project to understand more about this project.

Muktware: Jos, can you explain what is KlyDE?

Jos: I'd summarize it as 'a Plasma Desktop with a more conservative standard configuration'.

I use the term conservative both in terms of resource usage and user type. If you want a traditional desktop without search or powerful email & calendar tools and compositing and effects, this is your thing. Of course, omitting these things also saves some resources.
