 From my point of view, PyQt is easier to use (and is simpler, runs 
faster, looks better on Linux etc), while wxPython is much cheaper (and 
runs faster on Windows). As I am guerilla Python programmer (and try to 
drive as much Python into company as I can), I use wxPython on Windows 
platform as it doesn't trigger unnecessary questions on licensing, 
pricing et caetera.

wxPython has very nice GUI builder (wxGlade), it is not about as 
complete as Qt Designer, but speeds-up development significantly.
