The WG aims to create a reliable, user-friendly and powerful operating system for laptops and PC hardware, leveraging the KDE Plasma Workspaces technologies. The system should be attractive to a range of power users and content creators - people who build our community, as well as a platform for development of modern KDE and Qt applications - even in mobile space. There will be add-ons delivered based on our platform; the first such add-on will contain quality educational and scientific software. The product will be built upon the foundations of the Fedora Base product and closely cooperating with the Workstation WG on the technical aspects and (inter)compatibility.

Fedora Plasma teams believes in cooperation and sharing and is going to help covering additional work impact on other teams (QA, marketing etc.).
