Currently Sierra Chart uses MFC and the Windows API.

We do not plan to use QT or wxWidgets. These were decided against about two years ago. They simply have too much of a performance impact, and user interface change to be acceptable. Plus we would have to deal with all of the problems and bugs with them which is absolutely out of the question. Neither us or the users would have any tolerance for that.

We are in the process of developing our own classes that wrap the Windows SDK and remove MFC. Graphics will still use the Windows GDI wrapped in a single class.

All of this will be completed in 2018. Therefore, porting to another operating system will be relatively easy because it will just be a small set of functions and classes that have to be updated for the other OS.
