I'm brand new to C++/objC. I need to build an app on OSX Lion with xcode that has a very simple GUI. I'd like a fullscreen black window (no menu bar, scrolling, or resizing - just a black screen). In this window I'd like to have minimalist clickable buttons that are single color rectangles with text inside, in a custom layout. That's it. I'd prefer no other pre-designed GUI artifacts of any kind on screen.

As far as CPU usage, I'd like to find the most lightweight way of accomplishing this. Cocoa, wxWidgets? Is there a better option out there? Thanks for your help.

You didn't say what you want these buttons to do when clicked. Depending on your needs, you could maybe get away implementing this as a web page, then using Fluid (http://fluidapp.com/) to turn it into an app which has a full screen mode.
