Please forgive my ignorance about cygwin, I've been a linux user since 19=
and have not touch windows in years.

When I compile and link a qt application in cygwin, it becomes a win32 bi=
capable of being run under Windows, correct?

Now, is this qt application going to require an X server, and the X libra=
to run? Meaning it's linked as a win32-X-executable, -not- a "normal"=20
win32-gui executable?
