  Qt on Windows actually uses whatever style is current on the host
(in other words Qt uses native widgets). On X11 they have their own
configuration utility which changes style of Qt-based applications.
Problem with X11 is that there is no "OS style manager" (whatever
this could mean) for X11, or there is no _single_ style manager.
