if you want a cross platform desktop app then id recomend
perl/gtk2/glade or possibly python/gtk2/glade
but to be able to use the app on any machine they need perl/python &
if you want programming language & GUI wrapped up in one with cross
platform ability then java, although java is more difficult than
python(and i think perl to, but never used perl so dont really know).
i would think the time taken to learn java & create the app & the
GUI(you need to create the GUI in code, there is no java gui builder
available as far as i know)
would be far longer than that to brush up on perl or learn python, use
glade to create the GUI and then add the code for your finnished app.
