You've got my support. I think this would be a very important move
for the free software community and I've been wanting to do this same
thing for some time. I've mentioned it on this list a few times
before, with mixed reactions.
Porting glib was an evening's work. Porting gdk looks like it will
require a from-scratch rewrite. Once that is done, most of gtk can be
used without changes. One question though: port to mingw32 or Visual
C++? The former is in the spirit of the of the GTK+ community, and
would let anyone develop without invensting in VC++. On the other
hand, VC++ is a much nicer development environment. (One could get it
to build under either, but that is a bit more work).
