Have you tried PyQt and Qt designer (with Qt 3)?

Interested to know how it compares to Delphi / Kylix.

Probably there are many fewer 3rd-party (commercial or otherwise) Qt
components than there are Delphi components.  Of course, Qt 3 itself
has a lot of stuff there already (including database stuff, a very
good table widget, and a good rich text widget).
