Umm.. The *whole* point of the wx library is that it is cross
platform. You write to their interface, which is then linked with the
appropriate platform specific widget library -- Linux GTK+ / MS
Windows / Mac OSX are all supported.
Check out the demo in wxPython that comes with wxPythonSrc-188.8.131.52.
There is a wxWizard for designing cross platform install wizards.

See the wxGrid demo under 'Core Windows/Controls' for grid demo.
