Tkinter , or tk in general has got several advantages:
 - it's reasonably extended in the free soft community.
 - there's some packages : tix, blt

If you think a commercial system should be faster, take a look at
Java Swing running in Netscape, I've seen windows scrollings where the
, buttons and combo boxes blink like crazy horses. ha-ha-ha, a
system fast ?
And if you want to switch why not to gtk ?
Anyway tk seems far more extensible than any other thing .
