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.

the documentation ... is nothing like the one provided by Qt.


I've not seen *any* xplatform GUI FOSS framework/system that even comes close to Qt's documentation. Its documentation really is its killer asset, which unfortunately doesn't get enough attention, usually because discussions about Qt devolve into arguments over C++, or about Qt's implementation of the signal/slot mechanism or the MOC, or some similar minor/irrelevant thing.

Its sad, because a lot of other projects out there could learn a thing or two by looking at how Trolltech/Nokia did/does Qt's documentation:

http://qt.nokia.com/doc/4.6/index.html

As you said, the docs at the above link are also available to a dev locally (if they installed them) thru QtAssistant (doc view/search app), or from within QtCreator (Qt's new IDE).
