Plasma Active

Plasma Active is a workspace ("User Experience") specially designed for a range of devices. The first release of Plasma Active fully focuses on tablet computers. The user experience is designed around social networks, the web and multimedia content.

Plasma Active runs on the proven Linux desktop stack, including the Linux kernel, D-Bus, Xorg, Qt and KDE's Plasma Framework. The user interface is designed using Qt Quick, a declarative markup language allowing for organic user interface design. Plasma Active uses existing Free desktop technology and brings it to tablet devices through a touch-friendly user interface. Classical Plasma Widgets can be used on Plasma Active as well as newly created ones. The key driver for the development of Plasma Active is the user experience. Collaboration is made easy through high-level development tools and a well defined process.
