For an example of a *great* looking application written in IronPython,
checkout Resolver:

:-)

We create our dialogs with the Visual Studio designer (using the free
Visual Studio Express) and then subclass them in IronPython to
implement behaviour. For Windows development, Windows Forms is a great
GUI library.

For a reference to IronPython you could checkouit "IronPython in
Action": http://www.manning.com/foord
