It is hard to develop Windows application without Windows.

Why not java? For small applications it should run anywhere and it is
widely used. This is a language without surprise (not great, but also
not so bad).

I'm happy to develop on FreeBSD / OpenJDK / Netbeans, as far I can see
that works fine.

(To be honest, I would prefer good old C, but sometimes you don't have
the choice...)
