AFAIK it runs on both windows and OSX now:
For the OP, I recently started using yakuake, which is a quake-like console
that hides up the top of your screen and pops down when you press F12. I
still use konsole for most work, but sometimes it's a lot handier to have a
terminal pop down quickly with one keystroke. Like if you really only want
to type in a few commands and don't want to Alt-Tab to find your terminal.
It can use all your konsole settings as well, so no need to even spend a
minute customising it. The yakuake website seems outdated at the moment but
the program itself works a treat.
