Plasma Active 3 – intended for all types of tablets
Plasma Active is openly developed Free software. Its reference implementation builds on the Mer operating system and runs on a number of devices, including popular x86-based tablet computers and ARM-based hardware such as the Archos G9 series. Plasma Active can be used as a base for creating custom user experiences, and for a variety of purposes on existing and emerging touch-enabled devices. Participation in Plasma Active is welcomed, either through individual contributions or by joining the Make * Play * Live partner network as an official support or distribution partner.
Plasma Active is intended for all types of tablets, smartphones and touch computing devices such as settop boxes, smart TVs, home automation or in-vehicle infotainment. Plasma Active is a joint project by the KDE community, basysKom and open-slx. The goals for this open source project are:
- a fast embedded UX platform with minimal memory requirements
- customizable and modular to support different form factors
- an interface that adapts as users change Activities
