Somewhat off-topic, but: Is the Kylix's CLX tied to KDE?
I don't like at all to be tied to some wannabe-windows-desktop-lameness ;)
if I ever have to develop some commercial stuff with Kylix.
If it only requires Qt, then I'm OK with it (although I like Gtk+
better for it's better themeability ;), but if it requires KDE .. yuck!
