It should be possible to get Orange working with Qt 4, which is available
under the GPL on Windows, but it could take some work to update some of the
more specialized components to use the latest classes.

On a positive note, there should be enough information available to help with
the "porting" process, and the updated components would be able to take
advantage of the improvements made to Qt and PyQt since Qt 2 was released!
