- it must run on WinXP and Linux, idally also on OSX
- it must have a GUI preferably with the GUI’s native widget set

What you really need is Qtruby - it matches exactly your requirements.
There’s two options:
- use qtruby, which is based on Qt3 - pretty stable, but will not work
WinXP unless you’ve got a license for Qt3 on WinXP boxes;
- use qt4-qtruby - pretty cool, based on Qt4, still some useability
but Richard Dale is working hard on them (and then, you can do
and improve it for me as well ;-)…). And Qt4 is free on WinXP as well,
qt4-qtruby works there (according to forum posts).
You should get Qt/Qt4 and it’s documentation on Trolltech.
All the code you write will work on MacOS, Linux and WinXP…
