    You can download Kylix off borlands website (about 90m) and it's a lot like VC++ (I think, it's much like CBuilder anyway). That would be more what you want.

    I'm getting it now but its taken about 3 days (damn dialup!).

    yes, it is.
    you can use handy dandy makfiles with a copy of cygwin and gcc.

    Use cross-platform GUI widget sets like Qt or GTK, and you're laughing.
