Thanks for all the links and information. It seems that I can't make 
linux binaries in windows of my python code. What I mean is that I am 
using windows to develop my python code, but I want it to run in linux 
and mac. So far py2exe,gui2exe,pyinstaller,freeze,etc seems to all 
create .exe in because I am in windows. Is what I am after not possible 
so far?
Thanks again for all the help.
PS: I already did some google and tried out all the suggestions everyone 
gave but still nothing.
