Then I'd have to buy something like PyQT, and then I'd have to buy
something like ... :-)

I like the widgets, and the visual, but I can't afford buying a whole
toolchain for using it.  So, I use the tools that are free, that allow
the commercial use, and when it is not possible, I let the client choose
paying for something commercial that he will keep after the project
delivery (after all, he paid for that) or writing free software (free
software was their choice 75% of the time, this is another reason I
wouldn't invest on buying a license of Qt for commercial software...).

Indeed.  Macs are cool, but expensive.  Our salaries here in .br are not
like your in the US or Europe...  :-)
