I know I'm going to be roasted for this, but I have a windoze question.
Why am I so foolish as to ask Linux people? Because you are exactly the
kind of people who would understand my question.
I'm looking for a free, preferably FOSS language which can create
stand-alone GUI programs for the great unwashed to use. It's the
standalone part that's hard; all the systems that I know (tcl/tk/wish,
perl etc.) require the installation of an environment or interpreter,
something that I can't ask my granny to do, or post in a forum as a
solution to something.
Freebasic <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freebasic> is almost perfect,
and will do if necessary, but I think I'd have to hold my nose before
learning something with "basic" in its name. I was hoping for something,
umm..... a little more "C" like... :-)
