    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.

    Kubuntu is the worst distro available (buggy KDE implementation, buggy Ubuntu packages fanning the fire). I'm not surprised it crashed. Try any other distro with KDE (Debian, Fedora, OpenSuSE) and you should be pleasantly surprised.
    Change the theme if you don't want it to "look like Vista" (which as of 4.3 it doesn't).

    KDE4 has matured VERY fast for it's age because of the excellent community around it - 4.2 was the first usable release and 4.3 is the polished version of 4.2 with a few extras thrown in. I think the rest of the features should be ported from KDE 3.5 by about ~KDE4.6.

    It seems the "4.0 not for daily use!" message still hasn't reached some ears.

    IMO - KDE 4's newest release beats the hell out of any desktop environment available including Vista, Win 7 and Mac OSX.

    Hi, here's the Korona author speaking :-)
    What you see is KDE default theme, Korona's KDE has zero adjustments from defaults, its just OpenSolaris plus KDE packages and autologin set to KDE, nothing else. Deciding on the ugliness of the default theme is pretty subjective, but I don't particularly like it too.
    The widget styles work just fine, it takes two-three clicks to change it.

    Actually, the default style is Oxygen and the default Plasma theme is Air. So I guess you're doing something wrong.
