In front of me, I have an interview from The Modding Den with Emre Sokulla, the leader of the SimpleKDE project.
Sokulla said SimpleKDE's goal "is to create a KDE based (which can be the best base in my opinion), enterprise level, simple, easy to use, secure desktop environment. So we want to make something between Gnome and KDE. Some people consider our relationship with KDE [similar] to the one between Gnome and Xfce. But this is not true; we are not that far to KDE, we are forking KDE."
This is just what we don't need: Yet another Linux desktop fork.
