GTK also runs on Windows.  I have it running because mono has gtk as a 
dependency and won't run without it.  The mono environment runs on windows 
linux and the mac.  I use it to compile visualbasic type programs but the mono 
package also compiles c and I think C++ and C# as well.  It just has to be told 
which of its compilers to use and then builds executables for you.  The nice 
thing about mono is its price tag, $0.00 and Microsoft can't even beat that.  
If at all possible why not try installing mono on as many different platforms 
that you can get your hands on and see if the vbc code will build and run on 
those platforms?  If so, your project will suddenly become far more marketable. 
 The mono packages also have active support lists so if you run into bugs you 
can and will get support.

        I have just finished the 0th draft of a program for the speech-
        impaired [or mute who are able to read lips] to communicate with 
        the non-speech-impaired world.  The one thing that the impaired
        people need to be able to do is use a computer keyboard to 
        express themselves to others who are able to communicate vocally.

        My program is written in C and uses the gtk library interface.
        I have dubbed the program VBC and am currently testing it for 
        bugs.  I began this around a year ago, but hardware problems 
        cost months.  

        VBC runs on virtually any Linux-based system and should be easily
        portable to any flavor of Unix.  While i am going over my 
        documentation and cleaning up my code, I'm wondering: What next?
        and hoping this list can give me some clues.  Anybody?
