I wouldn't call wxPython easy to learn.  (It is, however, what
I use when I need a cross-platform GUI.) IMO, Tkinter is much
easier to learn. But, it doesn't use native widgets, so Tkinter
apps look like Tkinter apps rather than like other native apps.

I've always intended to look into pyFLTK, but have never had
time to do more than a simple "hello world" program.
