I hope there are people working on KDE who thing that there have to be some 
things done to really take advantage of a platform that maybe can't be 
reproduced on all the supported platforms (yet). Otherwise KDE might quickly 
become the second choice - just because some other DE is better integrated, 
has more niceties/features and plays better with a non-developer user 
overall, because noone said "hey that's only possible on Linux - stop it".

I guess the win32 support won't stop any new features (they should be 
just-not-there (tm) on win32) but the other Unices might... they shouldn't 
though as to me KDE is _the_ Linux/BSD Desktop first... supporting "the 
others" is nice but mustn't stop integration (?).
