General Development Ars' Peter Bright wrote an article today entitled "From Win32 to Cocoa: a Windows user's conversion to Mac OS X", in which he explains why he believes "Windows is dying, Windows applications suck, and Microsoft is too blinkered to fix any of it". These are rather harsh words, but there is a definitive element of truth in it. The article is part one in a three-part series.

It's a while since Opera was QT-based.
They're using a internally developed toolkit now. It does however bear resemblence with QT. Inherited sort to speak...

Futhermore I think the main reason a lot of people are not using Opera(I'm assuming you're talking about embedding the rendering engine) is probably because Opera is not free. (And WebKit and Gecko is, and IE although not free, it is free to use on Windows.)
