According to their website they use native Windows API, but when I tried
some Qt-programs I've seen those subtle differences with normal Windows-
applications, which is very annoying at times. When something looks
similar, you expect it to behave similar. :-(
(A good example of this is dialog boxes with No/Yes while that should be
Yes/No on Windows.)
The rather simple Qt applications I have tried (one of them was Psi) took
about 25-35% of system & GDI resource handles on Win98 (resource handles
going below 5-10% is almost always "good" for a system crash in Win9x...)
and they reacted a little slow at times. Until now I never got this
problem with wxWindows programs (e.g. Audacity) on Win98.
All this gave me the "I don't like Qt" feeling, but maybe it's just that I
tried the wrong applications. ;-)
Thinking about it, this might just be a Win9x <-> WinNT issue.
