Why can't Galeon and the other stuff in Gnome office be ported to windows?

Because it requires the GTK engine to be ported on Windows.
There are attempts at doing just that actually, but don't expect Galeon to run on Windows until the GTK port reaches a stable and usable state.

Why can't you just install linux? The argument goes both ways...let's leave it at that.

Actually, the Windows GTK port is quite stable. The GIMP runs great on Windows. The bigger problem is probably GNOME, which probably doesn't work quite as well :) Aside from that, the Mozilla build system on Windows with GTK and such probably don't get along too well. Having done a lot of work on the Unix Mozilla GTK port originally, and having done a lot of work with trying to do bad things on windows with the mozilla build system, I can say that it would be a lot of work to make get Galeon working under Windows.

But if you really really want to do it, don't let me stop you :shock:

waste development time, there is already K-melon and Pheonix already for Windows. Besides there's got to be something to urge people to swith :)

Galeon 2 is a great browser, so far it seens more polished than Pheonix, it actually follows my GNOME theme unlike Pheonix which still looks like GTK 1. Ugly as hell. I really wish that Pheonix developers would use Galeon code and port Pheonix to GTK 2 or somehow make it follow my damn theme like on Windows.

If anyone ever does make a port, I'd use it. I love Galeon's little clicky-hidey search bar thing :D
