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.

Since there is not a "OpenSolaris distribution", or at least the closest thing there is to one that can run X11 at all is Solaris Express: Community Release, then JDS3 comes with it, so is just as applicable. The only difference is that KDE may be the "first" from the OpenSolaris community. But "vanilla GNOME" was already available to run via blastwave.org long before KDE 3.4.1, so this article has a mis-leading headline...
