Yeah Qt isn't a good option because of its license.
I believe the cygwin statements are false as well, I'm pretty sure I've ran
Qt and GTK apps both on win32 without cygwin.

I think PNET needs to wait and let the GUI toolkits mature before picking
one.  Theres great promise for the Winforms implementation but its still
early to say if its going to have much performance hurt and how good it will

The advantage to using Winforms is currently developed apps already will
work on other platforms.  People using VS.NET don't have to redo their code
on another toolkit to accomodate portability.

The downfalls on GTK is development isn't as easy, even with glade.  With
winforms theres already 2 IDE's that handle Winforms designers along with a
debugger etc and thats VS.NET and the very good free IDE SharpDevelop.

I think we need to wait and see what evolves.

You think of Qt noncommercial edition for Windows.  This is

Sometimes I think that perhaps one of the best things I could do with
my life is: find a gigantic pile of proprietary software that was a
trade secret, and start handing out copies on a street corner so it
wouldn't be a trade secret any more, and perhaps that would be a much
more efficient way for me to give people new free software than
actually writing it myself; but everyone is too cowardly to even take
