I would put forth easy gui programming with Perl/Tk (or Perl/Gtk2). Tk is a project , which lets you make other projects. Although you may not find them by googling, you will find it in widespread use; .... so much so, that ActiveState includes it in it's Perl for Windows.
mod_perl has made many projects possible too.
