Hi there,
~  I know Scribus and Windows seems to be a dead issue, but I still feel
it would be good to have more than just the Cygwin version...

With the new QT porting efforts to Windows (see
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=440993), would it be
possible to build Scribus under Windows, using the QT port?
I never even tried to build anything under Windows (and don't have
access to a Windows machine at home, and at work I'm not really paid to
build software...), but maybe someone can say if it would be worth a
try. I saw that Kexi (the KDE database project -
http://www.kexi-project.org/about.html) has been build for Windows, not
using Cygwin.
Would one use the Cygwin source of Scribus, or the normal source code
(is there any difference anyway)? Maybe someone tried already and can
send me their binaries?

While I really want to move away from using QuarkXpress at work, I'm a
bit hesitant to use Linux only applications. Cygwin + KDE is not really
an option, as our equipment is too old and would make working with such
a setup a pain.
I'm happy myself to use Linux only (and didn't use Windows even once
this year yet), but I experienced quite some problems with interns and
volunteers (and colleagues) in a Linux environment. For an organisation
which depends a lot on volunteers coming in and doing some work, this is
quite a challenge, and presently I prefer a dual boot environment, and
the use of software which runs under both OS (Mozilla Thunderbird and
Firefox, OpenOffice, Gimp, Gaim, Inkscape, etc...). However, such a
thing doesn't exist yet, and it would be very very useful if it could be
done with Scribus... any ideas?
