KOffice Developers Reply to Yates
I have a splitting migraine. Had one all day long. I tried to explain to you nicely that Inge's statement wasn't overly bold. You didn't like that and have been arguing throughout the thread over something you don't know anything about.
KOffice already has one application that runs natively on Windows: Kexi. The other large applications... KWord, KSpread, KPresenter don't have hard dependencies on X11. They have a hard dependency on kdelibs, yes, but this has already been ported to Qt4 which is already working just fine on Windows. If you don't want to take my word for it, fine. If you don't want to take Inge's word for it, fine.
Regardless, he only said it was 'likely', not definite. You want to knock him for it preemptively when his forecast hasn't even yet proven incorrect? Inventing future dialog between the Open Source community and Microsoft? That's on you, pal. But, do you realize how silly it is making you look?
