IIRC, the majority of changes are configuration, autotool issues, etc. These
(in theorey) should be fixed now - although I haven't tried to compile KDE
3.0 out-of-the-box under Cygwin yet! (I'll make a mental note to do so in
the near future). Some are speed-up issues that only apply to Windows (e.g.
using Win32 native calls instead of Cygwin ones) and it doesn't make much
sense to back-port these. Other things are bugs that only manifested
themselves under Windows or fringe operating systems - these have been fixed
in KDE 3 already.
I'm sure Ralf will be able to explain things in a little more detail, but I
hope that helps. I'll add this topic to the FAQ.
