  I really agree with this statement. The initial learning curve is
a little high but then you become quite productive. My major problem
starting with wxPython is that the sizers didn't work quite the way I
expected. I suggest looking through the many tutorials about sizers
(after I bitched about them plenty, they actually went and wrote one
:) ). But if you have experience with autolayout mechanisms from
pygtk, throw them out the window before you start with wxPython and
that might help some. The wxPython ones just behave differently, and I
found that a little confusing at first.

  But once you get the hang of it, wxPython is great.
