How about a little more information? What kind of application is it? Does it need to be a GUI, or can it be purely textual?

If you need a GUI, consider using Qt. I've used Qt a bit and it looks equally good on both Linux as well as Windows. However, if the project isn't open source, you'll have to buy a license. http://trolltech.com/qt. Also, if speed isn't really an issue, I'd look at Java as an option. You'll be saved from rewriting a lot of code that way.

from what youre saying (i think) you may not even need to develop anything, you could set up WINE on the linux box(s) as an emulation of windoze to get your ap to run on both systems if youre lucky, some stuff works and some doesnt
