Hello Mihai,

you bring up 2 unrelated questions, i'll address them seperately


Leksah should not be considered an "official haskell ide", but merely one
of many community supported editing tools. And frankly one of the less
widely used ones at that! Leksah is not used much at all by anyone, though
theres probably a handful of folks who do use it.

 Many folks use editors like Sublime Tex (2/3), Emacs, Vi(m), textmate, and
many more.  Its worth noting that the sublime-haskell plugin for sublime
text, and analogous packages for many other editors, provide haskell
IDE-like powers, or at least a nice subset thereof.

2) There are people working on building better easily portable native gui
toolkits, but in many respects, a nice haskelly gui toolkit is still
something people are experimetning with how to do well. theres lots of
great tools out as of the past year or two, many more in progress on
various time scales, and gtk2hs is great for linux (and thats fine).
