Whats a good way to write GUI apps

P: n/a

I need to write a couple of small GUI applications but have never
done so on Linux (I'm a C/Delphi programmer on Windows normally)

I'm fairly conversant with linux but have never written any code for it.

I know this tends to be subjective and I dont want a flame war but can
anyone suggest the best language to learn to do this with?

I'm using Centos 4 if that's at all relevant.
thanks in advance.

I came from Foxpro myself in the windows world.

Since you are in a PHP group, here is a PHP answer. While PHP got its start
making web applications, it can also be used to do desktop apps. For
linux, check out the php-gtk project, which lets you use GTK for the
screens and widgets and put PHP behind them:

http://gtk.php.net/

PHP-GTK also runs on Windows.
