    what are the available gui's? advantages, disadvatages, comparison =
between them and portability issue (dui, dig, windy,...).

no.

hopefully... Walter show interest on the of porting SWT and wxWindows. (SWT should be easy to do wxWindows should be very difficult.)

DUI is a binding to Gtk+ and it's available on linux and several windows OSs (2000, XP, 98, ...). As far as I know DUI is the only GUI toolkit available for windows and linux. DUI should be easy to port to all the OSs supported by GTK+ once we have D available on those OSs. There are 4 big disadvantages of DUI: - windows developers have little intererst - Gtk+ for windows isn't as good as Gtk+ for linux . (that's a consequence of the first, I guess) - it's still beta (but quite usable) - it has only one developer (also openGL extesion are still linux only) http://dui.sourceforge.net I would like to see the SWT port getting off the ground. (I promissed help but couldn't get any free time to donate - yet, I hope) I never used any other of the gui toolkits. leds is build on DUI: http://leds.sourceforge.net Ant

SWT should be easier, not easy :-(.
