The family around kde-look.org grew again and launched opendesktop.org as a central place for developers, artists and other contributors. To round up the entire collection of family members gtk-apps.org and cli-apps.org were launched as well.
KDE-look.org was launched over 10 years ago to provide the KDE users with cool designs, wallpapers and other graphical eye candy. Under the hood of kde-look.org other pages were launched, most notable kde-apps.org.
openDesktop.org is the new head of our website network. It brings the contents and users of our websites together.
Like the other pages of the family openDesktop.org is a place to submit content, but while other places like kde-apps.org are environment specific and/or differentiate between art and programs, openDesktop.org takes all this together into one big page.
Frank the person behind all this, also pointed out that there is no need to upload stuff on openDesktop.org again – it will aggregate the other existing pages. Content is generally shared:
The categories are shared between openDesktop.org and the subpages. It makes no difference if you upload you stuff to openDesktop.org or to, for example GTK-Apps.org.
If all this content is really shared automatically between all these pages I’m really looking forward to these pages. It will make it much easier to find programs and eye-candy for your machine, to rate it, to discuss it and so on.
And to the author: Happy Birthday Frank! 🙂
