I don't know about SRSS wrt. the kind of support Sun gives. I do know that 
KDE4 will try to run sensibly on SunRay -- I have got one (thanks to Sun NL) 
for that express purpose. Plasma -- which is the primary eater of 
eye-candy -- is supposed to degrade nicely on less-capable graphics 
platforms, so there's the basis of support engineered in. The specifics have 
not been dealt with, though. In particular, Qt and Plasma use lots of 
gradients which don't work nicely in SRSS; I understand this has been 
forwarded to the SRSS folk to see if they can fiddle it in in some future 
version (and I think SRSS on Linux, which I haven't tried, uses Xorg as basis 
and it might already do the right thing with gradients).

So that's a "maybe" and a "yes" -- better than you expected, eh?
