== Compilers ==
+
<em>Compiler Requirements.</em> KDE is designed to be portable and hence to compile with a large variety of GNU/Linux, UNIX, Windows and MacOS compilers.
+
However, KDE is advancing very rapidly and the ability of native compilers on various systems to compile KDE depends on users of those systems [http://bugs.kde.org reporting] compile problems to the responsible developers.
+
 
+
In addition, the C++ implementation in [http://gcc.gnu.org gcc], the most popular KDE compiler, has been advancing rapidly, and has also recently undergone a major redesign. As a result, KDE will not compile properly with older versions of gcc or their newest unreleased version.
