    Default Korona Brings KDE 4.3 To OpenSolaris

    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?

    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:


    @filip007

    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    @filip007: kde4.3 is very stable, and your complaint about looking like vista is out of date.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.
