mxm-projects wants to create linux programs too, but
currently, there are no ideas, so this section is still
waiting for some persons...
the biggest problem currently are the drivers. a lot of companies
didn't realize that more and more people use linux. but a lot of
programmers try to create drivers. and there exist some places, where
you can find drivers. a good place - in my opinion is - FreshMeat.
the only problem is that the site is "big" (100kB). another
site is linux.org
>> installation problems
a lot of users didn't accept linux because the installation is currently
difficult. you should risk it, because you'll get a stable system! look at linux.org,
they can help you!
kde is a window manager, which is a client of

some programs availabel (old X-window programs runs too) availabel and some
software companies port their programs to KDE (Corel
some persons are creating an office called K-Office.
the KDE team is planning a version 2.0 which will be faster and some
other features (CORBA support, XDND, ...). troll Tech has released the QT 2.0
and this was the start for KDE 2.0
