Well, this would be the wise thing for him to do
given the variety of options for Windows GUI
programming in Ada.  But, an option for the
Unix-impaired is to use TeleUSE/Win from Aonix,
which automatically generates Windows look-n-feel
GUIs running on an X server on Windows.  Then again,
it's not a particularly cheap solution, and Bill
has already indicated he can't spend any money.
Maybe there are some free X bindings and a free
Windows X server out there.  Yuck.
