Shouldn't be too hard, you only have to look at all the architectures
supported in every single kernel source out there. Alpha/Sparc etc etc
etc... So if they have qt for BSD - OS10, then it should be easy enough to
translate to i386/linux.
I agree with you Ruairi, vmware is a great solution - for programmers/QA who
need to test software without fecking up their own systems, but using it to
run win to play qt! No way man. I actually own a vmware licence for linux -
as opposed to renewing every month - but I only use it to receive exchange
mail on a French win98 on Mandrake 8. Can't figure this mutt stuff out - I
get distracted too easily. Maybe someone could stick it somewhere :)
If you are interested, I have tons of win95/98 licences that were never used
in various languages, still in shrink wrap to upgrade your dos 6.22 box :)
WMware isn't always a great solution. The computer you want to run
Quicktime on mightn't be powerful enough to run two OS' simultaneously. Or
maybe like me, the individual might not own a copy of a Microsoft OS (Not
quite true, I think I have a DOS 6.22 diskset somewhere).
What most people here would probably be looking for is a player that runs
natively on *nix. Which means that the way forward is to keep beating
over the head until they give in.
Or if OS X has quicktime support try to bring it across, though not being a
programmer, I don't know how feasible that would be.
