Besides Linux itself and the KDE desktop, you'll find many other programs included with your Linux operating system. KDE alone includes over 100 programs, such as image viewers, text editors, email programs, web browsers, and games. You'll even find a free office software suite (OpenOffice) and a Photoshop-like program (The GIMP), both of which are discussed in this book. OpenOffice and The GIMP are generally considered to be the leading free applications in their respective fields. For this reason we have given each one a separate chapter.
