KDE The KDE desktop environment is going cross-platform with support for the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. In addition to porting the core KDE libraries and applications, developers are also porting popular KDE-based software like the Amarok audio player and the KOffice productivity suite.

You CAN already run tuxracer on windows:

As for all the FUD in the previous comments: The whole point of KDE4 is that developers will code for KDE4 instead of for a specific platform, because KDE4 now has an abstraction layer (phonon,solid etc.) that takes away the hard X11 dependencies.

When all the bugs are worked out you'll be able to run KDE apps on linux, windows or MacOSX trivially.

This is going to happen in a matter of months, not years.

youtube for KDE4! The Keynote linked the other day explains it all.
