Your stated target audience is those who want to
start developing GUI applications with goals of
comparison and introduction.
People who wish to build the next killer game
or application likely need no introduction at all.
However, those with either lesser goals or have
a need for fast development and friendly learning
curves for business/industrial in-house applications
or who wish to earn a living producing such customized
GUI applications would be well served by using Tcl/Tk
as many large companies in the world have done.
It is an unfortunate and somewhat silly situation
that so many large companies do use Tcl/Tk but often
have to create their own developers rather than
hire them. But then again, that reflects upon the
nice learning curve.
