I'm a Dutch guy born in 1974. Growing up I went from a dreamer to halfway mature. In 2002 I met my life partner and I'm living happily with hime ever since. I'm seconded at Stork Technical services since 2001. Right now I'm pretty happy with where I'm at.

QT4, the toolkit that brings liberty to Windows

Trolltech has announced it is also going to release QT4 under the GPL on Windows. This is a pretty major step. Considering that Windows was QT's proprietary business stronghold. I applaud Trolltech for this bold move. It is a major contribution.

It will mean the chance for KDE 4 to break all barriers and run on the worlds most used OS. If KDE runs on Windows and brings with it all stallward KDE apps like Konqueror, amaroK, K3B, Koffice, it'll mean a further nail in MS's monopoly coffin.

I for one would love to see that big K on every computer, wether it runs *Nix or Windows. We'll see how this will play out in about a year.
