 About this poll

Score 50%

OK, please let me explain, why I released this poll:

We all know that Windows is far from being the best desktop environment. While this may not change in the future and it's not the occupation of the KDE developers to change this, millions of PC users are forced to use Windows in their job because their employer requires the use of certain applications, which are only available on this... well let's call it OS, just because they do it.

However there are more and more really great applications for the KDE application, which a user may miss very quickly, when he has to use Windows (e.g. Kmail or K3B). Other applications may even benefit from the availability on Windows, because documents created with these applications should also be accessible, if the computer is currently not booted into your favourite OS with the KDE desktop running (e.g. KOffice).

In addition to that, some applications could also serve as a teaser for Windows users. "Hey. This application from the KDE folks is great. I wonder if the rest of the desktop is also so great...."

So please forget the OS wars and flames and think about it. ;-)

FYI, KOrganizer has already been ported to Windows. See http://korganizer.kde.org/korganizere/korgekopi.html for more info.

Ah, sorry, didn't look carefully at the supplied page. I think the following page is more appropiate: http://sourceforge.net/projects/kdepimpi/

 KDE app to be ported

 
 by hoernerfranz on: Sep 26 2004

there is IMHO absolutely no sense in porting kde (or any other free) software to non-free OS like the M$ platform -
it just prevents users from considering a switch.
people are lazy, in general.
providing them all the goodies from the free software world only leads to the conclusion:
'why should I try something else when I can have all the free/secure apps out there for nothing ?'
at least this is my experience when looking at all the wondoze users grabbing mozilla instead of internet exploder crap.

 KHTML

I would like to see KHTML ported to windows. It's a great rendering engine that hopefully might improve even more if some windows developers had the chance to work on it.

... which business will put kde apps on top of windows as long as microsoft prevents other (rival) software from running smooth on their os? also: as microsoft ships its windows with IE and outlook, only a small amount will even think of changing the browser or anything else.
poor windows users...
... happy linux users : )

I say nothing only because that would require the developers to work on porting it and would take time away from making it better for the system it was ment to run on *nix based systems!
for applications that don't change much yah that might be a project, but for a desktop enviroment that changes very frequently it would be more time spent on porting than it's worth.

I would have no problem if developers did this tho as long as it doesn't take too much time away from what they do best, implementing awesome features and usability.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
