prior to kde4, it didn't even build or work properly on non-linux/unix 
platforms. and yes, that limited usage for cross platform apps and by 
developers who worked on other operating systems.

clearing the "it builds and works" hurdle, the deployment issues are obviously 
the next set of things to get under control. helping on that would be great 
appreciated, of course. i think that if a few qt devs actually helped with 
deployment issues, they'd end up saving quite a bit of development time in the 
long run by having kde libs at their disposal.

anyways, yes, the non-linux/unix portability issues were another vector of 
problems for us up until now.
