OS/2 and eComStation For some months now, independent developers have been working on a Qt4 port for eComStation, and it's almost ready. Some Qt4 applications have been ported to eCS, as well. This project is funded by donations from the eCS-OS2 community and currently they have 82% of the needed sum.

I know about Qt, but don't do programming in C/C++ language. I can say that Free Pascal (FPC) and Lazarus has already beat Qt - based on your statement (platform count supported). FPC & Lazarus's slogan is: "Write once, compiler everywhere". FPC is a Object Pascal compiler that supports 15+ platforms and chip architectures, and Lazarus LCL framework supports GTK1, GTK2, Qt4, Mac OS X Carbon, Windows Mobile and Embedded Linux devices. All without the need to change your code, simply recompile your existing code for the target platform. Very cool!

Lazarus: http://lazarus.freepascal.org

Oh, and Object Pascal is so much easier to learn and write than C/C++, yet just as powerful and fast.
