This is the weak point I guess. It would be really great to get rid of
the X dependency and use the win32 backend for GTK+ instead. I don't
think we should commit this on HEAD since having to use an X server
reduces the use pretty much in my opinion. We could put it in a branch
to keep track of the patch and make it easier to work on it.
Do you have any idea if it's possible to do a mix and match here and use
cygwin for some parts but not have to use X?
Yes, Use wxWidgets.
On unix wxWidgets prefers to use GTK as the underlying widget set, under
win32 it prefers to use the native windows widgets.
We're definitly not going to port Planner to another toolkit, and a
different language as well :)
It's a lot easier and faster to get a native GTK+ running, I'm sure of
that. We just need someone to do it, abstract away the Unixisms and
implement those bits for a Windows version. The problem right now is a
lack of resources, which wouldn't be helped by rewriting the whole thing.
