Did you ever look at Gambas? http://gambas.sourceforge.net/ At the
moment it's dedicated to X environments with both QT and GTK support but
I wouldn't be suprised if they will support Windoze in the future. The
IDE itself is very nice and the compiler generates smooth code. It's in
Portage BTW. And last but not least they have a very nice community. 

Another option might be RealBasic http://www.realbasic.com/ . The
Current RealBasic version 2005 is commercial, but the older standard
version 5.5 for Windows is free. It's a little strange but with that you
are able to produce native Linux binaries for a QT environment.
