<br><br>Why not provide two, that can be installed? Gtk2Hs and wxHaskell. You<br>can bundle them by default, or download them, the difference is<br>minimal.<br></blockquote></div><br><br>In my humble opinion, in this context, GUI doesn't mean a library to
implement a GUI application. It rather means an interpreter/compiler
that provides graphical interface. Kaveh Shahbazian is a little bit wrong since there are some implementation with graphic interface like Hugs. But since Hugs is not a compiler but an interpreter, ones who are to develop a real world application will hardly choose it. Unless we are making in some specific fields
e.g. a web application, we would often need to get a compiled executable one. In this point of view, there is no Haskell implementation with GUI environment for real world application development yet. This may not matter a lot since we've got some alternatives like Haskell in Eclipse, Haskell in Emacs, Visual Haskell, etc. But anyway I want some GUI built in GHC/GHCi too.
