I agree Qt is a great solution however you are probably going to want to
ship static binaries to windows clients (only), especially to non-techical
end users... otherwise it gets kind of insane, much more challenging than
distributing java based apps IMHO.

But the IDE is fantastic plus you get a nice integration with webkit.

if I remember (been awhile) the license terms are a little different for
static, would have to re-read carefully.
