1969

UNIX syntyy

Vuonna 1969 Ken Thompson ja Dennis Ritchie aloittivat työn UNIXin parissa. Alkuun sitä koodattiin assemblerilla, mutta jo pian uudelleen C:llä, Ritchien luomalla korkeamman tason kielellä.

Thompson ja Ritchie Thompson ja Ritchie
1979

C++ kehitettiin

Vuonna 1979 Bjarne Stroustrup alkoi kehittää ”C:tä, jossa on luokat”, josta myöhemmin muodostui C++. Se oli hänen mukaansa ajan ainoa kieli, jolla saattoi kirjoittaa yhtä aikaa tehokasta ja eleganttia ohjelmakoodia.

Vapaan ohjelmiston alku

Vuonna 1984 Richard Stallman alkoi kehittää GNU’ta (”GNU is Not Unix”), kaupalliseen Unixiin perustuvaa täysin vapaata käyttöjärjestelmää.

Linux-ydin

Vuonna 1991, Linus Torvalds loi Linux-ytimen, joka perustui Andrew Tanenbaumin Unix-versioon MINIXiin. Linuxin synty vallankumouksellisti vapaiden ohjelmien historian ja auttoi tekemään siitä suosittua. Ks. Linux-ytimen kehityksen 25 vuotta -infografiikkaa.

1993

Ensimmäiset jakelut syntyvät

Vuonna 1993 ilmestyivät ensimmäiset GNU’hun ja Linuxiin perustuvat vapaat jakelut. GNU/Linux-jakelun muodostavat yleensä Linux-ydin, GNU-työkalut ja -kirjastot sekä joukko sovelluksia.

Qt luodaan

Vuonna 1995 norjalainen Troll Tech -yhtiö loi monialustaisen kehitysalustan Qt:n, jolla seuraavana vuonna kirjoitettiin KDE. Qt:sta on kuluneina 20 vuonna tullut KDE-tekniikoiden pohja. Lisätietoa: Qt History.

1996

KDE julkistetaan

Vuonna 1996 Matthias Ettrich julkisti Kool Desktop Environmentin (KDE), graafisen käyttöliittymän Unix-järjestelmille, joka perustui Qt:hen ja C++:aan ja oli kohdistettu loppukäyttäjälle. ”KDE”-nimi viittasi leikillisesti CDE-ympäristöön, joka tuolloin oli kaupallinen.

KDE One -konferenssi

Vuonna 1997 noin 15 KDE-kehittäjää tapasi Arnsbergissa Saksassa työstääkseen projektia ja keskustellakseen sen tulevaisuudesta. Tapahtuma tunnetaan nimellä KDE One.

KDE beeta 1

KDE:n ensimmäinen beetaversio julkaistiin tasan 12 kuukautta projektin julkistamisesta. Julkaisutiedote korosti, ettei KDE ole ikkunanhallintaohjelma vaan kokonainen työpöytäympäristö, josta ikkunanhallinta on vain osa.

KDE e.V. perustetaan

Vuonna 1997 perustettiin Tübingenissä Saksassa KDE e.V., voittoa tavoittelematon järjestö, edustamaan taloudellisesti ja laillisesti KDE-yhteisöä.
