In theory, yes, but has anyone seen KDE running on Solaris or anything 
like that? All the non-Linux platforms running free software desktops 
that I've seen have had GNOME - BSDs users, for example. Sun even 
built SUSE with a GNOME interface for its (cough...) 'Java Desktop'. 

I guess artsd could be retained for legacy use, but with ALSA 1.0 just 
around the corner, what's any Linux distributions excuse for not 
making it the default? And we know that artsd won't be much use until 
the non-KDE applications support it, which isn't very likely.
