Developers who rely on GTK or WX or Java or ... can make their software available for Windows relatively easy, but KDE developers can't. Maybe this is part of the reason why a KDE developer so strongly opposes porting free software to Windows: because he can't.

Err... this discussion has started because many KDE apps are being ported *natively* to Windows...
