    Which GUI lib?

    What would be the best GUI lib to use so that I could get cross-platform functionality?

    Basically, I have a lot of time at work I can be working on programs and they use NT. So, I'd love to have a simple window that would work in Linux and NT.

    Hi!

    One of the oldest efforts is wxWindows (http://sourceforge.net/projects/wxwindows/, http://wxwindows.org/) this is a C++ API (said to be similar to MFC) that has back-end libraries for Windows/GTK+/Motif/Mac.

    Hi,

    maybe have a look at the QT library from Trolltech (http://www.trolltech.com). The documentation is very good and it's free (for non-commercial stuff)

    bye

    It's really coming down to Gtkmm or wxWindows. Qt does look nice, but I don't want to have to re-learn something else if I decide to sell the software.
