KDE KDE 3.4.1 is the first modern desktop environment being compiled, packaged and working fully on the OpenSolaris platform. While KDE is known to compile out of the box on Solaris with GCC, using the Sun ONE Studio 10 Compiler still presents a challenge which requires a lot of patches. Dot.KDE has an interview with the Kde on Solaris team leader.

Once OpenSolaris with KDE (and a nice collection of KDE and Java apps, with Java SDK and J2EE container and NetBeans) is available on a live CD, or can be easily downloaded and installed on my Thinkpad, eMachines PC, or Gateway PC, I'm there.

Solaris / OpenSolaris is intriguiging me more and more. I'm pretty big on Linux (I use Mepis, Fedora, CentOS, Mandrake, Ubuntu, Knoppix, and Kanotix), and I prefer the GPL to the CDDL. But as far as I'm concerned, another good, accessible *nix system thrown into the mix can only be a good thing.
