    Sockets or GUI API?

    Okay so I feel I've got the basics down, and I want to move on to something else now. I'm tossing up between whether I should start learning the Sockets API, or a GUI API. It's probably a matter of preference, but I'm curious to hear peoples thoughts on this. I'm using Windows with VC2K in case you're curious.
    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
