Hi David,

You might contact Håvard Frøiland (haavard@users.sourceforge.net), the 
developer of KTouch (part of the KDE Educational module).  KTouch being a KDE 
application is based on Qt and as such it might be possible with a little 
work to backport it work on Windows (linking to the "free" Qt for Windows).  
You would need Håvard's permission to do that linking (since that's 
intentionally a lowercase "free").

Anyway, could be fruitful.
