Maybe the other way around?

Perhaps its more proper to say the QT operating system now supports the OS/2 - eComStation kernel?

I do think it is more proper to say the QT operating system rather then a toolkit. QT in effect is its own windowing system, there is virtually nothing used of the underlying NATIVE OS, all controls, widgets, etc are drawn by QT, in that they ONLY EMULATE THE NATIVE OPERATING SYSTEM. Look at the QT source, about all of the native system used is a blank window frame, then qt draws to a buffer, and this buffer is dumped to the screen. QT replaces just about everything about the native OS with its own system, it replaces threading, file handling, etc...

QT is about as freaking bloated as you can get, Microsoft .net is absolutely svelte compared to QT.
