Tk, in its default configuration, does look old, but I don't think ugly. I don't think gitk's interface is any uglier than those of my other desktop tools like Firefox, claws-mail, etc.
And the whole point of Tcl/Tk is that it's easy to build up "megawidgets" from simpler widgets so you don't *need* a multicolumn list box. Once the code is written to make a megawidget, you just use it.
If you don't like writing your own widget code, there are plenty of
libraries (eg, BWidget) that have all the widgets you'd ever need.
