    Phoronix: Korona Brings KDE 4.3 To OpenSolaris

    While Sun Microsystems puts their weight behind the GNOME desktop environment for Solaris and OpenSolaris, there are developers that do work on providing a quality experience for KDE on OpenSolaris. However, getting KDE to run on a clean OpenSolaris installation can require building KDE from source and taking various other steps. Fortunately, for KDE fans, there is now the Korona distribution, which brings KDE 4.3 as the default desktop environment to an OpenSolaris stack.

    Hmm, it looks butt-ugly. I suppose the widget styles (Oxygen, etc) won't work yet?

      That's great idea, KDE is crash Titanic that's for sure but on Solaris can run hardcore stable or maybe not

        I think people should really stop with this "kde crash" bullshit. Maybe you are referring to kde4, but kde 4.3 is stable considering it's age. Don't forget both kde3 and gnome 2 are very very very old so it would be crazy to pretend that kde4 is stable like them.... oh, and I hope you weren't talking about kde3..

            All this duplication of effort is annoying.

              Lol it has got nothing to do with Vista UI... I wonder where you see they look the same... oh well... be happy with your Mono apps then.

                What a MESS with font rendering, they look like shit:


                When KDE developers will learn this?

                This is how it SHOULD look like:

                Some people call KDE4 "Open Source Vista"

                  @filip007: kde4.3 is very stable, and your complaint about looking like vista is out of date. Nowadays, it's all the rage to say KDE is a copy of Windows 7, not Vista... Not that they really look anything alike in my opinion.

                  However, the Solaris port of KDE is still very experimental, so i would expect plenty of crashes and missing functionality from this distro.

                  @vermaden: dear god that's an ugly font (title bars/task bar font, i mean). KDE developers have absolutely no control over what fonts a distro decides to use, by the way.

                      But it has everything to do with the Windows 7 UI - Microsoft stole everything they could find, right down to KDE's calculator!

                        Probably before you'll learn proper english.

                        By the way KDE fonts are fine for me in Linux and Windows, so guess who's to blame...

                        Uh, and search for Kubuntu in this and several other forums. You'll get how good is their implementation. Try Arch or Slackware. If you're able to, of course.

                          Its not a matter of different fonts, its just how they are RENDERED mate, and yes, it looks the same crappy on Linux and PC-BSD, its not OpenSolaris fault.

                          I have seen similar cripled fonts on Linux and PC-BSD, but I havent used KDE on Windows.

                          I stick to BSDs mostly and learning OpenSolaris from time to time, Linux is dissapointing me, I am tired of its mess geenrally.

                            No, they don't. They look very good on Linux and there's a ton of rendering configuration options so they render how the user wants.

                            But has nothing to do with KDE of course. That stuff is in freetype and cairo.

                              Right, which is determined by the way the distro decides to setup it's font related packages, like freetype. Nothing to do with KDE.
