I don't know if it does now, but like the rest of KDE, it will run on
Solaris at some point.  It will not run on Win32.  If your company were
interested in Linux on the desktop (a number of companies in this area have
migrated) then it is an option.  Otherwise, you are talking about running it
as an X application off a server using something like Exceed or
Reflection/X, which, IMHO, is not something most companies would want to do.

It is being ported to Linux, and the beta should be available in 4-6 weeks.
