Ruby/Qt doesn't work with Qt 3 on any platform, it was based on Qt 1.x or
2.x, and never ported to Qt 3. 

It shouldn't be too difficult to get QtRuby working on Windows, but I don't
personally have a Windows development environment to do the port. Also I
don't understand the license issues involved - when the GPL'd Qt 4 windows
is released it will be clearer. QtRuby works fine on Mac OS X, although the
build process is a bit fiddly - so it certainly isn't X11 specific and will
run on anything Qt runs on.
