The GUI toolkit was originally available on the Mac.
But now, ah, now!
"The Object I/O Library 1.2 is currently
  only available for the Wintel platform. "

The last time I tried Clean on a SPARC, using even the old
GUI toolkit required you to locate and install a graphics
library (XView) that Sun abandoned a _long_ time ago.

They have some _really_ interesting ideas about building web sites
using generics.

I paid for the Intel C compiler.  I'd pay for Clean, if only I
_could_ use it.
