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.

Ahum. Gnome runs already on opensolaris. Before KDE.

Yes you can run Gnome on opensolaris, but built with GCC. The same thing has been possible with KDE since the 2.x days, so that's not exatly news. What this is about is KDE built with the Sun Forte compilers(the native compilers on Solaris). Gnome does not build on opensolaris with Forte yet. Pleas RTFA.
