No. It's a modular interface - you can choose whether you want the whole
thing, or only certain parts of it.


A Nice Cup of Tea

Buffer overflow attacks. By flooding a program with too much data, a hacker
can track and manipulate the overflow and trick the system into following his
instructions as if he were the sysadmin. The technique has been known for
decades, yet Microsoft still hasn't come up with a way to defend against it.

The DE stands for desktop environment which should provide some sort of a
clue as to what KDE is.

Further large hints are available here.

"On systems running the X Window System (typically Unix systems), the
desktop environment is much more flexible. In this context, a DE typically
consists of a window manager, a set of themes, and programs and libraries
for managing the desktop. All of these individual modules can be exchanged
and individually configured to achieve a unique combination, but most
desktop environments provide a default configuration that requires minimal
user input."

"...modules..."
