Yes, but many primary Windows users (those who use Windows as their main OS)
have objections. Things such as: GTK libs and friends are too large just for 
that having to install them would confuse a newbie user, using the native win32
GUI will look more natural, etc. I believe that Fabrice prefers a native win32
GUI but he is ok with using a GTK GUI on Windows. (Basically, he just wants
something that is functional.)

The GTK code I wrote should work equally well when compiled on Windows, though I
currently don't know anyone who uses it there. (My one tester reported that the
computer he had installed qemu on had some sort of hard disk failure iirc.)

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
