Qt

As you know qt4 works on windows, mac and of course linux.
this means that kdeapps can be run on all three platforms.
could qt and kdeapps be made portable?
imagine the possibilities!

well...

Most things coding in QT (and able to be compiled on windows) for the most part already carry the necessary QT dlls. So I dont see the purpose of running in entire framework for a single application?

No

You need more than just Qt. The app itself has to be able to run on Windows. Amarok does lots of UNIX-specific stuff inside it. Koffice and Konqueror both require a full-blown KDE environment. In short, it's more complicated than you think it is. Otherwise, there would be publicly available binaries of Konqueror, Amarok, etc. As it is, there are no binaries I know of that work on Windows other than a test one of Amarok that someone worked on back in April (but good chunks of it like the file scanner and library didn't work).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Capitalization matters.

QT = QuickTime
Qt = a cross-platform application development framework

AFAIK, Qt is ready for Windows, but KDE is not. It's in beta with most of the core components not working.
