But that's not a solution for John's target audience.  Nor for most
users, honestly.  The Linux layer is targeted towards Azure developers
mainly, and not intended to be an application support layer.

GTK+ is working natively on Windows, and the Python bindings work on
Windows. However GTK+ does not have nearly as good integration with the
Windows desktop in terms of look and feel as other solutions like Qt and
wxWidgets.  Running the Linux version of GTK+ inside of Windows' Linux
layer would not solve that problem!
