My opinion -- in Linux, the pickings are so slim I bend over backwards not to 
go GUI. When I *have* done GUI, it's been mainly Perl-Tk or Lazarus. Perl-Tk 
is too messy, and Lazarus is good an easy but too black-boxy.

Back in my Windows days I liked Powerbuilder, but of course Powerbuilder cost 
$600 and was kind of crashy.

In other words, I'm looking for something better than anything I've ever used
