in reply to Perl/TK with Windows

There are X-Servers on Windows, but you don't need them for Perl/Tk. However, for Windows (and indeed any other OS ;-)) I would prefer wxPerl. It uses native widgets and so looks more Windows/Linux/MacOS-like.

Try to search for wxWindows and wxPerl here on PerlMonks, you'll find a few tutorials for it.

    I agree with that. Tk widgets tend to look ugly (IMHO) almost everywhere. Wx has a nice native look on Windows, and a Gtk one on Unix.
