Programming

Hi. I'm new to Linux but I have some windows experience. What I would like from you experts is to know if there is a non commercial programming app. I don't want c language but something like visual basic or pascal. Is there any?
P.S:I'm looking for a graphical program for making apps for xwindows. I think you understand what I'm looking for.

Thanks in advance

HAHAHAHAHAHA....VB on Linux...Please don't insult yourself any more.  
If you want to write apps for UNIX machines, learn C.  Pascal compilers are around, but Pascal is practically dead as a commercial language.

I never said I wanted basic but a language similar to it because, for the moment, it's the only programming language I know...

It's very good but it isn't exactly what I asked for. I'm looking for a program giving me the availability to create my one graphical applications. I want the programming language to be similar to Pascal or Basic because it's the only languages I have partially learned.
Thanks in advance

The only answer I can come up with is to use VB and then convert it to C/GTK with:

I have never tried it, but the same author has made a ASP to PHP converter that works really nice.

I really recommend you to learn C++ instead...

I'm sorry, I won't be able to give any points yet because I'm having problems and I must reinstall Linux. I'll soon let you know if it was what I was looking for.

Thanks
