    Depends. You can use WinAPI for windows programs, DirectX for windows games, OpenGL for games on several OS's, ect. If I were you, I'd start out with WinAPI.

    theForger's tutorials are quite good.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    You don't use another program, or another language. For example, WinAPI is an extension of C that allows people to create windowed applications. It comes with most compilers, so like I said before, check the Windows Programming board, or Google it.

    Im a QT/KDE fan too, i just think it looks nice. But its C++ and Trolltech wants like $2000 per dev for a copany/comercial app, thats kind of greedy.

    GTK2 is starting to look better, and its C. Never really liked GLADE though...
