Framework and language to be used for a desktop GUI

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Hi,

I am going to create a desktop GUI app on my Porteus machine. What framework and language can be used for this task? Of course, I am looking for something simpler that a barebone C++/Qt.

For simple, lightweight and independent, may I suggest FLTK:

I'd suggest installing FLTK-FULL, and then perhaps looking at some example applications and see if they run on your box:

Neat stuff.
