So which user groups does KDE aim at, then? There are some strong forces 
pushing KDE for the corporates. That is only to be supported. Traditionally 
KDE is also for *nix users, thus admins, developers, researchers. But KDE, 
Free Software in general, is also for private computers. Private computers 
are at home, at home are families, in families are children. Or others come 
with children for visit.

My understanding is: KDE is for everyone with a desktop.
