The responses here have glossed over that if the OP is using COM, there
really is no need for a cross platform GUI, and if the choice is between VB6
and Python, again there is no cross platform issue.*  That said, I have
found that creating interfaces in VB6 and objects in Python is a great way
to get the best of both worlds.


Perhaps the exception is using pyro to remotly control COM objects from a
*nix box.
