KDE Plasma/Qt Technology

Using the multi-platform toolkit Qt, the flexible extensions of KDE Frameworks plus the power of Plasma Shell, Plasma Mobile is built with technology which feels equally at home on the desktop and mobile devices.



KWin and Wayland

Wayland is the next-generation protocol for delivering cutting-edge interfaces which are silky smooth. KWin is the battle-tested window manager which implements Wayland, delivering a polished and reliable experience on both the desktop and mobile devices.
