I like that dream... Hence the reason I work on the fpGUI Widget Set.
A GUI Framework implemented in Object Pascal, no huge 3rd Party
library requirements and easy portable to other systems. Currently
runs on Linux (Xlib) and Windows (GDI) and the graphics backend tested
on Windows Mobile.
See http://opensoft.homeip.net/fpgui/

I don't require Unicode support in fpGUI but others do, like Felipe. I
also don't want one platform having features another doesn't. Hence
the reason I started with Unicode support while running under X11
(Felipe already did it for GDI).
