Come to think of it. You were right it was still X11 based.

Clearly unless we are willing to limit how windows builds are built and
distributed the QT/Windows solution - is not economical, may not be
practical, and windows users would not be able to roll their own Windows

But I don't think it is impossible. I can't even see QT being viable
unless Trolltech creates a Free edition on Windows.
