Developing GUI Applications on Linux

I’ve been looking for an API for cross-platform application development in my spare time. I would like to target GNU/Linux environments for an application that I am looking to develop as a hobby, but I would also like to make the application available to the larger pool of Microsoft Windows users. I am seriously considering GTK+. The GTK+ project described GTK+ as “a highly usable, feature rich toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces which boasts cross platform compatibility and an easy to use API.”

Questions, comments, and responses are welcomed and appreciated.
