I'm a web developer with lots of programming experience, but I'm clueless on this next step.

My Question:
What are the languages I could use to accomplish this task?

My Task:
Develop stand-alone software to run, minimized, in the toolbar and give users notifications regarding their Want-List from one of my websites.

I'm seeking some advice here, so any help would be very much appreciated.

Can you let us know what platform you would like to have this?

MFC/Win32 or I would say both.

Could you point me in the direction of some useful (beginner) tutorials?

Also, would REALbasic work for this type of project? Or would MFC/Win32 be easier anyway?

I have no idea about the REAL basic but MFC/WIn32 would be the best but not the easiest I must say. Also for tutorials you have to browse through the forum and you will find some good links.
