I skipped Qt because of the weird license

As said VB or even much better Delphi !

But to be honest,
wanting the same language for commercial and open software,
I'm very satisfied with Python, and  must say it's much more beautiful 
language than Delphi, seen over the full width of programming.
Although both languages are Object Oriented,
for some (unknown) reason it's 10 times easier to maintain and extend 
libraries in Python than in Delphi.
I WOULD BE MUCH OBLIGED, IF SOMEONE CAN EXPLAIN THAT DIFFERENCE !
And with wxPython and some tools I made, I almost have the same 
environment as Delphi.


cheers,
Stef
