I apologise for asking some questions that are no doubt totally obvious 
to those of you who have current knowledge, however...

Back in 2006 someone made a port of Gqview to windows. It died pretty 
quickly. Was this because:

a) GTK's cross platform capability is a bit of a fiction

b) Gqview/Geeqie was too complex to port successfully

c) Windows users are happy with what they have, and would not bother 
with Geeqie

I guess that the reason is b) but I'd be grateful if someone would 
confirm that.
