Let me get this straight. You want someone to give you an idea for a project
that has never been done before but is easy to do because you are a newbie?

There is little that is available on windows that is not available on Linux
especially if it is a CGI based application. Infact I would go as far as saying
that there is nothing inherently windows or Linux about a CGI application in the
first place.

I would settle for something that you understand and is within your abilities.
Look at various applications on the web and see which one strikes you as 'I
could do that, only better!' and go with it.
