    Has anyone considered using Qt4 for the next version of WASTE?

    If you used Qt4 to handle your GUI, File I/O and network I/O you could probabily get away with making the same code work on Windows/Linux/MacOS X with minimal or no modifications between platforms while making the code a bit nicer by getting rid of all the Win32 junk.

    If I didnt already have a few projects and university consuming much of my time I might attempt a port to Qt4 myself. As it is I dont have quite enough time to try and figure out how the existing code works. You need more comments :)

     
    • It's not free software, so I suppose it'll never be used in Waste's project. If we use Qt4 we should follow its license, and it's the contrary of developing a 100% open-source project... ;-)

      Hi! With me its the same. I'd really like to port WASTE to Qt4, but until the end of october I'm swamped with university related stuff.

      Maybe if we could get a few coders together, we could actually manage to do this. Waddayasay?
