One great open source GUI package that you left out is GTK ie. pygtk.
i cant compare it with wx as i have never used it but isay its much
better than QT.

Anyway for ur q if u want to compair qt n wx. QT should be faster coz
it has a better documentation.
and welcome to the python family!

kind regards
