Ok but Windex is Windows only where GtkAda is cross platform. I've not used a
lot GtkAda but I have seen GVD (GNU Visual Debugger) entirely developed in Ada
with GtkAda and I must say that it looks nice and it is reliable. It is true
that under Windows it does not look like a "real" windows apps but I've heard
that some work was beeing done to integrate platforms look-and-feel (Mac,
Windows) into GtkAda...
