I do not program in windows anymore, so I did not try
to have a windows version of the qt embedded binding.
It was already enough work in itself. You are ofcourse free
to make one :-)
The binding is made in C/C++, one of the makefiles is 2730 lines.
So it helped me remember why I prefer to code in pascal.
Compiling the binding was a nightmare, because of the incompatibilities
between the c-compilers. You need the exact same compiler
as the one the qt/embedded library was created with. And it is impossible
to just take the source of that compiler and compile it
with a recent compiler, the compiler source is not compatible
anymore. So you need to cycle back several times.
Mandrake: You can always download a fresher iso. It is worth it.
Kylix works fine till and including version 10.1 (so not 2005 or 10.2, but that is off list)
