QT5 bounty taken is nice but at the same time he says that he has no knowledge about GUI dev so how is this gonna be ported? I was assuming that GUI QT code will be wrapped to native Amiga GUI.

@kamelit0
You can port without knowing details of how the stuff works.
Qt will be qt as on Linux, OS X Or Windows and not a wrapper to zune or something.

QT 5 taken? Where? When? The last thing I recently read after asking was he will not take it for reasons he does not explain

@thread

Very enlightening for folks wanting to understand some of the basic differences between AmigaOS, MorphOS, and AROS and the challenges that co-operation between them entails.

Most of that gets covered about 38 minutes into the discussion.

A few points:
- I have plenty of experience with writing GUI programs, but not using MUI or ReAction.
- You don't need to know how to write GUIs using a specific toolkit in order to port it, just as you don't need to be able to read sheet music to port a music notation software :)
- Qt is a not GUI toolkit, but a C++ framework, which happens to have its own GUI toolkit among its dozen of other modules.
I hope this clears up some of the confusion.

Yep, but one more thing, does it mean no OS4 port of QT5?

The OS4 Qt5 port is already being in the works by alfkil, but he is short of time to finish it. He said he could complete it in a couple of months if he weren't busy with real-life stuff :\
