    WinAPI on Linux

    Hello everybody,

    I'm not a Linux programmer, this is just for curiosity.

    Can I build non-console Linux programs, like WinAPI for Windows?

    Yes, GTK+ and QT are the most popular windowing APIs.

    winelib is an implementation of the WinAPI on Linux as well.
    Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.

    I can C.

    Compiler: gcc
