That's a bit of a pity given the fact that the Windows GPS support is one of 
the features that Marble is still lacking. The Position stuff for Linux is 
basically covered quite well already. It's not exactly rocket science so much 
of the appeal wrt the Position stuff inside Qt Mobility was with the "exotic" 
platforms Windows and MeeGo.

I've also seen the feature matrix being fully green wrt Tier 2 platforms. But 
I guess 95% coverage basically equals 100% in this case ;-)
