True, of course. Sorry for not getting this across correctly. I meant that due 
to this change it is less likely to find any company sponsoring Quanta 
development because they need it themselves.

The persons doing KDE on Windows are only a very small group within the KDE 
community. Aside from having to fix things that build or work nicely on Unix 
platforms, they also have to take care of providing executables and thinking 
about deployment.

However, I am quite optimistic that they'll try to include it in their set of 
supported application once it becomes releasable on Linux.
