I like java well enough, except for the strange reluctance to support operator overloading. (C# is much better in this regard.)

On further thought, C++ is probably the way to go.
It has:
- A portable model for the canvas (OpenGL)
- A portable model for text rendering (GLTT)
- An adequate object model

What is missing from this lst is a nice portable lightweight UI (paneling) system, and a portable I/O model. Yes, there's gtk and Qt, but I did say lightweight. (The thing is 80MB to install on OSX; Qt is even bigger! I didn't bother.)

I did find
- a Fast Light Toolkit, which looks very promising. (I downloaded it; it's extremely lean.)
