I would recommend GTk. I am using it and Ruby to build a program for
schools to write their reports with (another "to be released gpl when
im happy with the basics" program). It will run in linux (obviously),
In windows you just distribute the gtk runtime with your program and
it will work fine too. If you use Gaim on windows then you will see
how well it works.
