I'll take an Electron app on Windows any day over one that has to utilize an X11/POSIX layer to run. In fact I'm not aware of any widely utilized software on Windows that relies on the stack you're advocating for.

I don't believe Qt on Windows uses or requires X11 in any way; grandfather commenter is just confused.

It also isn't GPL-encumbered.
