If you have programnmed GUIs in other languages there is no great
hardship in adopting a GUI based approach. But If GUI is new then
you are adding significant complexity to your learning curve.
Its easy to get confused over whether sometghing is wrong
because of the GUI, using OO or the basic language.

Personally I advise learning the language first then move to a GUI.
Well structured programs should be relatively easy to port, badly
structured programs should be rewritten to understand how to do
it better in the future!
