Pure GUI apps for Win/Linux/Mac in C++ with G++

P: 13
GUI apps for Win/Linux/Mac in C/C++

Please, i want know how to write a "pure" "native" "API-level" apps for Windows and Linux and Mac in C++.

I don't want one-code run-anywhere, but a native code for every OS

Solution For Windows

Just use Mingw/Win32 API, its very simple!, very clear, and that way i like programming under Windows!.

------------------------

Solution For Linux

If i use for example wxWidgets-dev/GNU G++, my application can't run on other PC/Linux if there don't install wxWidgets ?! if else, how to include wxWidgets library in my EXE ?

------------------------

Solution For Mac

Objective-C++/GNU G++ is the solution ? or Carbon/C++/GNU G++ ?

exclude /QT because it IS cross-platform. The same for GTK. The non-portable one for linux must be x11, but it isn't exactly UI library - but everything UI must be already ported somewhere.
