[ros-general] KDE for ReactOS

The problem is that there is no 'native' API which we can use to bypass 
"buggy and slow reactos GUI".
GTK+ will still use the same "buggy and slow" GUI until it really gets 
"stable and fast" :-).

But if the KDE team will make KDE4 really a windows-shell replacement, then 
it is very interesting, and I'm for sure will be interested in getting KDE4 
to run under reactos.

So true, but I never meant it to be easy any way.

You're talking about porting an app to another UI, but I say about wrapping
it. Say the program asks windows libs to draw a widget. Wrapper says: OK, 
converts the request to GTK+. GTK+ asks GUI to draw a widget.
Yes, this is damn difficault, even more difficault than porting OOo to 
But this way it would be much more tasty.
