I'm not one for Python, i much prefer C. How could i write a GUI application using the OSes GUI API. (I am assuming Raspbian has one, maybe not though.) I cant find any resources on anything like this.
Raspbian (like most Linux distros) uses X11 though you're better off using a GUI toolkit rather than working with X11 itself.
Common toolkits are Qt, GTK, Tcl/Tk (Tkinter is python's wrapper around this).
Raspberry Pi Press have a book about programming GUIs in C (using GTK), see this page
where you can buy a hard-copy or download a PDF of it for free.
