wxPython is a cross-platform toolkit. This means that the same program
will usually run on multiple platforms without modifications.
Currently supported platforms are 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows,

In most cases the native widgets are used on each platform to provide
a 100% native look and feel for the application.
