KDE EDU on Windows

Need refined format

 *  What projects should be ported? 
  - All

 * What's the current stage?
  - Everything compiles
  - Everything that Lazlo knows seems to works
  - Last exe's in windows.kde.org are 4.8.0 based and not all of them work

 * KDE-EDU Windows installer?
  - Plan to improve the installer the kde windows team provides
  - We need a "3 next" click installer
   - Otherwise there's no motivation because it's difficult for people to get
     since the KDE windows instaler is only "geek" friendly
    - Lazlo supports a workaround that is using cpack
   - Copy Amarok solution?
    - Some people think it's a good idea
    - Lazlo says it's a hack on a hack

 * How to attract contributors to fix runtime or build issues on Windows? 
  - Continuous integration?
   - Not yet integrated in jenkins
    - There's a windows specific one in a company in germany (didn't get the name)

 * How to attract contributors to fix runtime or build issues on Windows?
  - Motivation is missing if there's no users, which gets fixed by the great windows installer

 * Cross compilation on Linux if no license available? Document how to do it?
  - Cross compilation is not really needed, compiling is the "easy part"

 * Do applications work?
  - Lazlo thinks we need to test our applications all before starting to push them
  - Aleix thinks we can assume things work
  - Albert suggests we do testing live here

 * Can we distribute on their market?
  - Windows 8 has a store, it's only for Metro applications
  - Seems it's a political decission to only allow a few libs for the market

 * What will happen with Metro(Windows 8)+KDE?
  - No OpenGl for Windows 8 (ANGLE)
  - Metro applications seem to be too restrictive (can't link other libs than the blessed ones)
  - Digia are interested in getting it to work on the store
  - Seems it's a political decission to only allow a few libs for the market
