the difference between both of these is which windowing system/operating 
system they are made for:

qt3 is mainly the "normal" qt for X11 on unix, fixed in some ways to run on 
cygwin. the advantage of this is that this is the most stable gpl-ed qt you 
can have on windows now. the disadvandage is that it uses X11 calls to draw 
anything on screen, so you end up with:

qt application
X server
windows gdi drawing routines

the x server in the middle eats some performance in this case.

qt3-win32 is an attempt to port the platform-dependent parts of qt, so that 
they run on windows native, so that you don't need the X-server any more:

qt application
windows gdi drawing routines

this version should be faster once it is finished. it is still in heavy 
development atm, and it is progressing very fast. if you want something 
stable, choose the other one, but if you like to test it and give some 
feedback on it, feel free to do so.
