Stupid Windows? Now, now, let's not start a flamewar. ;-)

I've never used it, but I do see that there is a "Curses for Windows for 
Python" project at

http://flangy.com/dev/python/curses/

though it's an "alpha" stage project.

There's also "public domain curses" or pdcurses, available for Win32,

http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/pdcurses.htm

Presumably it would work with the Python curses module. But again, I've 
not used it.

In my opinion, you would probably have more success writing a GUI 
application using one of the "easy" app builders like PythonCard. It may 
be a new experience for you, but there will be more people who would be 
able to support you and answer your questions.
