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.

And why would anybody use KDE on MacOSX?? That's quite beyond me... I guess it's using aging X11 and other methods of eating your memory ;)

It doesn't use X. It's native and they mostly head for native apps, not doing whole desktop.

Dude, you can already can use KDE 3.5 applications on OS X using X11 for _years_.

The whole point in the OS X port of KDE4 is to get rid of that X11 dependency and to have native KDE appliations on OS X that integrate more nicely.

And what the point is? Of course, the KDE applications. For example, you get a decent mail client if the rather basic OS X mail client doesn't fit your needs.
