Same here.

Further, I wouldn't want to see one the "cross-GUI" libraries used.
Invariably, they don't provide the right look-and-feel on each of the
platforms. The subtle differences will just drive a true Windows (or Mac)
user nuts. [X Windows has no single standard, so no biggy]

For Windows, using VB or MFC is practically a MUST in my book.
