Building GUI Application Software for Linux
 
Hi,


What programming languages and tools are mostly used and are in demand ("by deamand" I mean professionals who know them) for creating and deploying GUI application software for Linux platform?

I should mention that I am familiar with C/C++, VB. Net, Oracle, SQL Server, SQL, and am now learning Advanced Java which is part of my course.


Thanks!

Well, there are GUI libraries/"frameworks" (like gtk+, Qt, wxWidgets) and there are their higher language (opposed to native C/C++) bindings to Perl/Python/Ruby/etc.

Java is supposedly cross-platform; I do not like how Java GUIs look under Linux; I would go with Qt.

An interesting framework: Ultimate++ : http://www.ultimatepp.org/ - among other things shows how inefficient Java is for GUIs: http://www.ultimatepp.org/www$uppweb$vsswing$en-us.html .
