Common Lisp has catch and throw, and I believe that these programming
constructs originated with lisp many years ago.

CLIM is one windowing package that works on Linux. At Cycorp we use Franz
Common Lisp to develop our own lisp dialect SubL. We do not use lisp for
GUIs, only HTML and lately java. Lisp is not very portable once you get
into graphics.
