"In other words, Tkinter is what allows your Python programs to interact with a user through a windowing system, rather than the command line I had been forcing you to use earlier. Tkinter is not unique, there are other toolkits that Python can use to do exactly the same thing. We are working with Tkinter here because it?s the de facto standard for Python ? also because you should have Tkinter (they come together). Tkinter?s look is pretty ugly, but we are here for practicality, not beauty.

Other toolkits may also provide additional widgets. "
