      KDE is a Free Software project that exists and grows only because of the
      help of many volunteers that donate their time and effort. KDE is always
      looking for new volunteers and contributions, whether its help with coding,
      bug fixing or reporting, writing documentation, translations, promotion,
      money, etc. All contributions are gratefully appreciated and eagerly
      accepted. Please read through the Supporting KDE page for further information.

      We look forward to hearing from you soon!


              About KDE

      KDE is an award-winning, independent project of hundreds of developers,
      translators, artists and other professionals worldwide collaborating over
      the Internet to create and freely distribute a sophisticated, customizable
      and stable desktop and office environment employing a flexible, component-
      based, network-transparent architecture and offering an outstanding
      development platform.

      KDE provides a stable, mature desktop including a state-of-the-art browser
      (Konqueror), a personal information management suite (Kontact), a full
      office suite (KOffice), a large set of networking application and utilities,

      model can yield first-rate technologies on par with and superior to even the
      most complex commercial software.
