source code to be compiled for windows

my college use only windows systems .. please dont get me started on this !! so now the thing is .. if i do a project with all graphical user interface ... i was thinking of GTK ..
how will i compile it to work on windows .. i found MinGW will have to look more though ...
will it be a reasonable idea to code in perl or python .. there code will be platform independent i guess !! as they are interpreter anyway ...i dont know abt python but i guess perl is .. i m not very sure
so wot do u suggest .. which is the best option ? i wanna use linux to build project .. but the software produced should work on windows ...
any suggestion are welcome
thank u

You could try Perl + Tcl/TK or do it as a web app eg Perl/PHP and have Apache display it as HTML.

I would look at Qt. Since it is made to run on both Linux and Windows.

As is Gtk (you have heard of Firefox for Windows and The Gimp for Windows, right? )
