Erlang/GTK do work under windows (some minor stuff with Gtk version is 1.3
under windows while
the unix version is based on 1.2.8). Most stuff missing and things that are
incomplete today will
resolve nicely when Gtk2.0 is released. Then most things are glib objects
and I can attach hooks
to about everything :-)

Yes GTK is nice and I hope to have a pre-release soon (I have also made a
glade2erl program
and some extensions to glade that will make simple gui stuff just a mouse
click away...)

See you then :-)
