After porting Glom to maemo, the next target was Windows. Glom's dependencies are already ported to Windows, so getting it to work wasn't too hard, though some hacks were still necessary to get things going (see the Windows build instructions). Currently, only the client-only mode of Glom runs on Windows, but I hope the full version follows soon.
I installed Windows XP within a virtual machine on my laptop to do the port. The good thing is that this doesn't force me to leave my usual Linux environment, especially when I am not at home where I still have a desktop Linux machine. However, on the other hand compilation is slowed down pretty much, becoming really significant when compiling rather big C++ projects such as gtkmm and glom, probably due to memory constraints.
As always, pictures say more than a thousand words, so enjoy. The third screenshot shows a weird problem when scrolling directly after connecting to the database. The bug disappears when minimizing and re-maximizing the window. The screenshots are truncated to the left because the Glom Window requires more space than the 800x600 assigned to the virtual machine for the Small Business Example (which the screenshots are from). I could also use 1024x768 (the laptop has 1280x800), but I like to have a terminal or other windows next to the VM, and I don't like scrollbars in it either. Other drawbacks the current version suffers from and which I am going to tackle within the next days are listed in the Glom Wiki.
