Almost all KDE-specific applications start with K such as Konqueror web browser, KOffice, etc. This desktop is more popular in Europe (while GNOME is more popular in North America) and the default desktop in SuSE and Mandrake. Both are well-developed desktops for Linux. Recently, RedHat decided to create a hybrid of the two for its desktop in order to have a single supportable standard.
