GTK is a pain because it's design doesn't fit well in my brain. Yes, I
know it isn't a good reason, but I feel more comfortable with other
approachs. I must say that pygtk is the best binding in terms of
support and features.

And I say wxPython is slow because startup time. I must develop for
old systems (Pentium 200, 64MB RAM) and takes a very long time to
start. That's a big step. If you have recent hardware wxpython is
great, but with old systems IMHO it's slow.

I like FXPy because it's very fast, has a lot of widgets and works
reasonably well.
