You could try mono and monodevelop

Mono is the open source version of .NET/C#. This would teach the basics
of .NET and C#.

You can use Python and py2exe to create the executable that would run
on Windows, but you have to run py2exe on a Windows machine.

If you know Pascal you can look at the FreePascal and Lazarus. I
haven't used it in years, but I was able to create several applications
that ran on both FreeBSD and Windows.
