I wonder how he learned about Tk. To be quite frank, I've not found
tkinter to be particularly intuitive, and I've been doing GUI
programming since the early 90s (with a wide variety of toolkits).
Mind, that's not necessarily an indictment of tkinter per se; MOST
windowing toolkits take a bit of mastering. But my general estimate is
that it takes roughly as long to learn a GUI toolkit as to learn a
language, and takes comparable effort.
