Where should I start?

I Mostly use Windows XP, I should be able to obtain a linux OS by January
I took 6 months of web design last year
I' leaning towards a C programming language be it C, C++, or C#
I'd like to learn a language that is cross platform
Thanks for any insight you all may have!

If you like C languages I would suggest you learn C++. C++ offers OOP that is lacking in C and if you know C++ you can learn C# fairly easy. You may want to start with a programming theory type book/tutorial first.
Alight, where would I find one?

C++ or Java would be my suggestion, as they are both more powerful than C and are natively cross-platform (C# requires Mono to be cross-platform). Bruce Eckell has available for free for both C++ and Java. Regardless of which language you choose, I recommend taking time with the boring basics. There are some fantastic programs written in C++ and Java, but they are not always easy to write.
is there a way to make GUIs in C++?
Doesn't really matter just curious

Whichever language you choose, it has to be object-oriented programming language.
Non OOP languages can still be useful.
Anyways, either look at C++ or Java, as they both are great for teaching good programming practices and both do support OOP. However at times OOP isn't always the best approach.
Try looking for a decent book on either C++, or Java. They are both great languages.
