Hi this is a very strange requirement and cant seem to find an answer on any technology I know

I want to make a desktop APP which allows user to enter and submit some information. Consider a simple form with few text boxes and a button. When the user fills the info and clicks the button, all this info should be passed to other person somewhere else on the planet. I hardly know of any server side programming so its very difficult for me.

Is there any other way to do this?

I thought of making a PHP page which could be submitted by the software (using a form on PHP page). I dont have windows hosting so I have to rely with linux only. I know email system can be used but it would become tedious for the users. Any other way out?

My basic requirement is this only : know what details you have filled

You can use some service layer to synchronise the data between clients.
   
Personally for this I would look into Linux webservices[^] for the desktop client to pass the data through.

you then have many choices in how the other person would be able to view the information for example

1. email
2. Another Desktop App etc
