Everyone has opinions :-)
I have settled on wxPython principally because of
1) Linux/Gnome <-> MS Windows portablility of the code.
2) The fact that wxPython follows the look and feel of whatever window
themes might be installed in Linux/Gnome or MS Windows.
3) Apps so written have that native "look and feel" and fit right in.
