There is no quarantee yet, but a lot of people seem to work towards making 
KDE(libs) for these platforms a reality. (No idea about embedded systems 
supported by Qt, but from a API point of view most should not be that 
different from Posix, may I put a wild guess here).
Having even already a kdelibs 3 port to the Windows world (see I 
would be really surprised if there won't be one for kdelibs 4, given that 
here no longer Qt license problems are a stopper for some.

Because this layer has some values? Or why is it developed at all?
