thanks for clarifying that

> When Scribus was ported to Mac OS X, Qt 4 was not available.
> Stable versions of Scribus still do not use Qt 4 - on any platform.  
> This
> is because code must be ported from Qt 3 to Qt 4, Scribus has a lot of
> code, and there aren't that many people doing the porting.
> There was indeed no suitably licensed version of Qt for a Scribus
> Windows version when that first saw work. There still isn't, really,
> since Qt 4 Open Source Edition only supports MinGW. TrollTech have  
> been
> kind enough to help the Scribus project out in this area, so that  
> builds
> can be done with MSVC++ (thus gaining Scribus access to GDI+ etc,  
> which
> MinGW doesn't support).
> In short, the Windows version has in no way been "chosen over" the Mac
> version. A large part - though far from all - of the difference is Qt
> 3's rather alpha quality support on Mac, which should be fixed when a
> stable Qt4-based version of Scribus can be released.
