Personally, I'd go with a more suitable language for desktop application
development. PHP, to me, is great for two things: websites and command
line scripts. If I wanted to develop for the desktop market, I'd go with
either C++ and compile for each environment as needed, or go with .Net
or Java to make it more portable. It might make more sense to convert
some of your existing PHP code into a different language.
