KDE is not a window manager. KDE is a desktop environment besed on the QT
widget set. It works with any X and on most unices.
pykde is (AFAIK) wrapping around both the qt widgets and the added KDE
As the QT widgets are cross-platform, it might not be too hard to port them to
windows (might cause licensing problems though...)
KDE on the other hand assumes a real unix operating system.
