KDE's Mission

To fulfill our Vision, KDE has taken on the mission to

  • create software products which give users control, freedom and privacy
  • provide users with excellent user experience and quality
  • enable users regardless of their location, background, abilities, operating system and device
  • promote the Free and Open-Source ecosystem

KDE's Strategy to achieve it

To provide control, freedom and privacy, KDE produces software that

  • users can adapt to their needs (being simple by default and powerful when needed)
  • makes it easy for people to improve our products and create their own adaptations
  • builds on open standards to prevent "lock-in"
  • integrates well with existing online services sharing the same values
  • gives users full control over which information about them or their behavior is ever collected or transmitted
  • provides usable security and privacy features to protect against surveillance and data theft


To create a convincing user experience, KDE creates software that aims to

  • have consistent, easy to use human interfaces
  • delight users with great features and quality
  • provide a seamless user experience
  • integrate well with other Free products to complete the experience


To reach as many users as possible, KDE strives to create software that

  • is available on major Free and proprietary operating systems, platforms and devices, with the help of Qt and other state of the art technologies.
  • interoperates well with proprietary software, formats and services
  • includes high-quality translation and localization
  • empowers users independent of their abilities


To promote the development of Free and Open-Source Software, KDE

  • maintains a diverse and inclusive community
  • offers frameworks and libraries which facilitate the development of high-quality applications
  • provides a great learning environment and great opportunities for personal development
  • mentors people to contribute to Free and Open-Source software
  • collaborates with other organizations which share our values for mutual benefit
