Hello haskell-cafe,

afaik, there are just two good enough libs - wxHaskell and GtkHs. can
anyone point (or write) detailed comparison of their features? i plan
to write large GUI program in Haskell and want to select best one.
the requirements that i can imagine at this moment is the following:

* my main target is Windows but ability to compile the same code both
for Windows and Linux would be a plus
* the program developed is a sort of advanced file manager, so i need
treeview, table view and tabbed view controls
* user likes beauty, so various bells-and-whistles are welcomed. in
particular, it would be great to have skinnable interface
* use of resource file for all texts to make internalization easier

Best regards,
 Bulat                          mailto:Bulat.Ziganshin at gmail.com
