I've been working on KDevelop for Windows in the past. Help streamlining it 
there is always welcome. Right now it indeed wouldn't be a good idea to 
include it in the Microsoft Store, it's still in very preliminary state (and 
setting up / using the right compiler is a bit cumbersome to say the least).

@Chris I saw you've been using Craft to compile KDevelop in the past. If you 
still would like to build it I suggest trying again and post the relevant 
Craft output to kde-windows at kde.org (or the #kde-windows IRC chat on 
Freenode), in case something doesn't work.

Be assured that KDevelop is indeed buildable on Windows, see the CI builder 

But indeed, KDevelop on Windows would need some love :)
