Linux "10 days? Well that hardly sounds hard enough! Sure, it doesn't sound so hard but take in account that over 500 million of us use a Windows OS at least once, everyday of the week and you too will see that going cold turkey from XP to KDE might be harder or more limiting than first thought."

> suppose a normal user like me wants to write a simple app in windows all i do is just fire up VB6 because its so simple and easy to use....what if i wanted to write something for linux what would i do ? (really i have no idea what i would do...iam not bein sarcastic)

I think we were talking about 'real' development (not that you can not do real development with VB, of course). I quickly tried VC++ Express and if VB Express is the same, I agree they look like cool applications. Under Linux, there is this thing called REALbasic (which works under Mac and Windows, too). I think it is what you are looking for.
