Solaris CDE on Linux

I just downloaded the Sun Solaris CDE to try on my Linux system.  I am curious to find out if it is true that "any UNIX program can be compiled and run on Linux".  My question is:  Has anyone tried this, and succeeded it its installation?  I know that I could purchase Red Hat's TriTeal CDE, but I don't feel like paying $100 for it.

What Sun lets you download is a Solaris binary.  SPARC Linux is s'posed to have binary compatability with Sun binaries, but I don't know how good it is.

In any case, Sun didn't give you source code, so you can't "compile and run" the software on ANY system, Linux or not.

I'm not aware of any way to run Solaris x86 binaries under Linux.
