Given the lack of details, you should try to leverage what you already know. What languages do you already have knowledge? As stated in a previous thread where you asked a similar question:
  • Given that you already have Java installed, consider Java Swing which is the collection of classes installed with Java which allows GUI programming.
  • Tkinter is the GUI class hierarchy installed with Python by default. It leverages the Tk GUI interface through Python. This is the same Tk interface leveraged by Perl/Tk. If I recall correctly, Ruby has bindings for Tk as well.
  • Qt is yet another GUI library which can be called from a number of languages -- C++, Perl, Python, Ruby, etc.
  • wxWidgets is a popular C++ cross-platform GUI library. Bindings exist for at least Python & Ruby. There may be others.
