I have heard that you can use 32bit asm to create gui apps, but can't seem to find anything on it, is it possisble?

I have been using nasm in linux(i know this is a fasm site, but it shouldn't make much of a difference)

GTK is good for general applications, easy, and fast enough for most things (and those examples are very useful to learn how to use it). If you want something a bit faster, theres always Xlib (X11), and if you dont want external libraries, you can talk to the X server directly (nasty stuff though). Above that, theres OpenGL (GLuT comes in useful for that) and SDL if you're wanting to make some kind of game/animated GUI.

That is one thing i miss from Windows (well, DOS really) is the simplicity and speed of int 10h. (which reminds me, if you want a GUI without the X server running, then you can use svgalib).

Hope it helped,

Here's also a great tutorial covering writing programs on X LIB in NASM: http://www.rag.kgb.pl/zip/XProg_asm_by_Nekro.tar.gz (unfortuantely it's PL only).
