KDE on Windows?

Author: JT Smith

From a post at KDE News: "I was browsing SourceForge today and stumbled across the KDE on Cygwin project.
Apparently, they have ported Qt 2.3.0 for X11, Qt 1.45 and KDE 1.1.2 to use the CygWin
tools and CygWin/XFree86, respectively ports of the popular GNU platform and XFree86 to
Windows. Although this is a big step towards making KDE applications useable on Windows
machines, it might be interesting to get rid of the X server requirements as Simon Haussman has done with
Konqueror/Embedded."
