The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

well there's always wxGtk, which would probably offer you the best of both worlds, especially if you're already pretty comfortable with the GTK environment. That said, GTK does work absolutely fine on win32 platforms too.
Same for wxWidgets. The Windows version has themed widgets to make it look like Windows (which GTK cannot do). I like GTK better because it isn't OOP but I hear that wxWidgets is very good and easy to use too.
To my understanding, wxGTK is wxWidgets. It's just the wxWidget classes wrapped around GTK. So you program as you normally would with wxWidgets, and then your gui's use the GTK widgets. You would also then compile your code on Windows and it would run, and you could compile your code on Mac and it would run.
ok, all i wanted to know is if once i have my app working on linux, written using GTK2 and C, i can easily port it to windows and mac. as acid_kewpie replied to my question, this is easily done, so me happy
