I personally don't[1] do proprietary so do neither MS Windows nor Apple 
OSX, but...


There's further links from there, including to the kde-on-windows kde-
techbase pages, the IRC channel, and the kde-windows mailing list.  The 
latter would be the better place to ask.

On the OSX side it appears macports/fink/homebrew do kde.  Here's the 
community page:


[1] Most software including that covered by the GPL includes waivers on 
damages, etc, and when the source is available to examine such that I can 
fairly agree to take on that responsibility, great.  But people who want 
me to agree to take responsibility for the actions of code I'm not 
allowed to examine before agreeing to take such responsibility are 
obviously unethical and have no respect for /my/ rights, so even if I 
/could/ legally run the software without actually agreeing to take such 
responsibility, why would I, as we've just established that they are 
unethical and can't be trusted.  Unethical people want me to run some 
black-box software on my computer doing who /knows/ what, because it's 
black-box and I can't /see/ what it does, while wanting me to agree to 
take responsibility for whatever unknowns might happen?  I don't THINK so!
