Linus Trying KDE Again, Calls it Whimsical

Filed under
KDE

For almost as long as Linux has existed, fans follow with great interest which distribution and which desktop Linus Torvalds uses. He switches distros from time to time, but he's been changing desktops more often than his socks lately. Several years ago, he was using KDE and calling GNOME something like a "Fisher Price interface." Later he switched to GNOME, then to Xfce. Now, the father of Linux is back to using KDE.

In a post to Google+ today Torvalds admits he's "trying out KDE after a long absence."
