Eye Candy on the Web

Eye candy is a term that computer geeks use for all the gee-whiz, pretty features of a software program that don’t serve any useful purpose beyond making things look cool. Transparent kickers, fading menus, pretty icons, and wacky window decorations are all eye candy.

KDE is known for its eye candy, and I must admit, it’s much of the reason I like it so much. Others in the Linux community feel the same way, which is why an entire web site, http://www.kde-look.org, has been created just to provide eye candy for KDE. This site has it all: wallpapers, styles, window decorations, icons, sounds, screen savers, and even add-on programs that enhance KDE in significant ways. All these things have been donated by users from around the world who are eager to show off their artistic skills or who just want to enhance KDE in whatever small way that they can.
