Better in what ways?
AHK's tool has one advantage: it computes automatically the ClassNN used by scripts.
Beside that, there is nothing wrong with having several similar tools, one can provide an information that the other ignore.
So I have Winspector Spy, WinSpy++ (http://www.catch22.uk.net), an AHK script for quick run, etc.

If you are looking for an alternative to Au3 spy then you might want to have a look at toralf's AHK Window info script as well-

AHK Window Info 1.5

I've always thought that this should be included in the AHK installation.

UISpy.exe looks better than all the others, on the screen shots. Do you know, where can we download it?

UISpy.exe looks better than all the others, on the screen shots. Do you know, where can we download it?

It's available as part of the Microsoft® Windows® Software Development Kit for Windows Vista™ and .NET Framework 3.0 Runtime Components.

IMHO, it's not worth it unless you are willing to go through the trouble of dowloading and installing this huge package. For fun I tried it. It took me about and hour (I'm guessing) to do it. When I tried to run UISpy.exe, it tries to call home!

After all that trouble, I couldn't get UISpy to work. It crashes immediately after calling home. I suspect that the program only works on Windows Vista (I have XP).

If you want to brave it yourself, here's a link to the download page:

Good luck! (Don't do it!)
