Tkinter is a part of the Python core, and so will be available to the 
majority of beginners. Tkinter is also likely to be supported (by Tcl) 
in Linux and other Unix-like environments, although with a slightly 
lower level of ubiquity.

I suspect Alex is considering availability at least as strongly as the 
technical merits of the packages.

And, when all is said and done, beginners shouldn't have to go download 
stuff before beginning to noodle round with GUIs.
