Plasma Active aims at creating a cross-device user experience for devices such as tablet computers, media centers, smartphones, and more. Plasma Active's mission statement is

Create a desirable user experience encompassing a spectrum of devices

Plasma Active runs on the proven Linux desktop stack, including the Linux kernel, Qt and KDE's Plasma Framework. The user interface is designed using Plasma Quick, a declarative markup language allowing for user interface design based on Qt Quick. Plasma Active uses existing Free desktop technology and brings it to a spectrum of devices through a device-specific user interface. Classical Plasma Widgets can be used on Plasma Active as can 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.

Plasma Active focuses on mobile devices, such as tablet computers. Plasma Active Tablet's user experience is designed around the web, social networks and multimedia content.
