Boa (Boa Constructor) is really nice for wxPython GUI
work, but it has some bugs when using Linux that might
be dealbreakers for the user.  At least I have had
problems on Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit (but none or very few
with WinXP).

For those that might care, they are (as of now, Boa
0.6.1-4) are:

- The File -> New option is cut off in the menu.  But
that can be gotten around by using the Palette to choose
the same options.

- No gridlines in the Frame Designer (makes it harder
  to use)

- Some problems with the height of the rows in the
  Inspector, at least with 64 bit Ubuntu, some of which
  can be fixed with this workaround:
  and there is a note there saying it has been patched
  in a 0.6.1-6 version in a Debian repository.  Haven't tried.

- I have had some random shutdowns, but not many.
