<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.
