It has been years since I have been forced to sit down at a windows machine.
As far as I am concerned Windows went the same way as VMS some years ago and
I was just as happy to see it go. Clean having graphics support under
Windows is irrelevant to me; academically interesting perhaps, but of no
significance: Did you know the skeletal structure of a tree leaf is often a
tree itself? As I see it, Clean has no IDE and does not support any graphics

I've never heard anyone call the Windows API simple either.
I personally prefer QT but I'm sure GTK supporters could find reasons for
using GTK over QT. Someone else suggested wvwindows, and there are other
choices. Every tool has advantages and disadvantages, and I wouldn't presume
to say my choice was better than the others, but it would be nice if Clean
supported graphics programming, and that means picking a toolkit.
