General Development Most computer users interact with their workstations primarily through some form of graphical user interface (GUI). In the world of Microsoft Windows, this interface is tightly controlled. The UNIX world, by contrast, offers a veritable smorgasbord of different GUIs with varying degrees of functionality. They range from minimalist window managers, such as twm, to large, capable tools, such as GNOME and KDE (K Desktop Environment). This article shows you how the Tcl/Tk scripting language offers a simple and elegant way to code GUI widgets with minimal effort.

I code REBOL apps full time, and it's a joy being able to move between Linux and Win98/XP hardware with very few problems, except for fonts.

My daily coding box is a Mac, but REBOL runs fine there too. It's wonderful to be able to code a complex application on the Mac and then run it without trouble on the WinXP box.

But REBOL is really not a fair comparison to Tcl. REBOL is more suitable for building entire coding/debugging/release infrastructures, not just simple GUI applications.
