Yep, just last week I think we had someone saying they found it faster 
on win32, and thought that was pretty weird for an OSS app. It probably 
depends on things like your video drivers, X server, etc.

Internally, Scribus doesn't really care what window system it's 
displaying on. The drawing operations are the same. The chances are that 
any differences are within Qt, rather than Scribus, when it comes to 
display output.
