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.
