Hi Kari
Did you ever get any answers on this?

Many programming guides for Visual Basic and
similar spend a lot of time on explaining
the main event loop and why programmers
must turn their programs inside out to
become event driven

The other problem (see surveys by Myers and Rosson)
is that GUIs require much more effort,
upto 90% of the code is UI code in some cases.

My experience is that the most useful information
is in programmer oriented texts such as VB, Delphi
etc, manuals, and in books on OO user interfaces
