We like to think of MythTV as the ultimate Digital Video Recorder and home media center hub. Think of it as a Free and Open Source alternative to Windows Media Center or Tivo. It started out in 2002 as a way for Isaac Richards to produce a better TV-viewing environment than his cable company's digital cable box could provide, and through the help of the open source community quickly grew into a powerful tool for watching and recording television. With its plugin architecture, it has been transformed from a mere TV viewing application into a full home media center suite, capable of managing your personal photo, video, and music collections, as well as keep you up to date with the weather, a ZoneMinder home security system, and much, much more.

KatePart is a fast and feature-rich text editor component with many advanced features. It implements the KTextEditor interfaces, a common interface collection for text editor components in KDE, allowing it to be selected as the editor in applications that lets the user chose from different implementations, and it can use KTextEditor plug-ins.
KatePart is originally based on code from the KDE 1 richtext editor widget, but has been almost completely rewritten over the years. It is the default text editor widget in Kate and KWrite and also the default to display text in Konqueror. A lot of other applications use it as text editing component, too, like KDevelop.
