I've just done a QGIS course at a government agency where all their imagery is ecw or MrSID. If QGIS 2 ships with MrSID and ecw support then QGIS will be a much easier 'sale' in situations like that. I reverted to 1.8 but even that only supports MrSID, not ecw. And they are unlikely to move to Linux desktops, where I would happily build gdal with support for these formats.

please post questions on the mailing lists, IRC or gis.stackexchange.com

anyway the answer is yes, qgis 2.0 will support out of the box ecw on Windows.
