Qt on Win32

What really bugs me, is that at one point the KOffice suite had more potential than any other free Office suite. But since it doesn't run on Windows, it is kind of uninteresting, because that's were you have to start if you're gonna move away from MS Office. And as a consequence, KOffice has not matured to what it could have been. And this holds true for Qt in a more general sense as well. People choose GTK or other toolkits, to be portable to windows. I've also heard other that UserLinux use the argument that it's better to not use Qt for a platform, because they want to support closed source software. And so slowly but surely, we'll be watching Qt - the once superior toolkit technically - loosing ground.
