Submission + - Amarok is being ported to Windows (kde.org)

NightFears writes: Amarok, the popular Linux multimedia player, is being prepared for a Windows port. As highly-demanded as it is, the port spawned a lot of controversy among the dedicated Linux users, since many of them feel that after the release there'll be one strong argument less for convincing people to switch to Linux.

The amazing part here is that it only took two days. Basically most of Amarok was already so portable that it compiled without changes. I really expected it to be much more work. Shows that it pays off to use an excellent cross-platform toolkit like Qt in the first place.
Ah yes, and there's a screenshot.

A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that works.

Working...
