After searching i may have concluded to cx_Freeze (because it was the only one that noticed that currently supports version Python 3.3), but i do not know what GUI library should i combine it with. Does cx_Freeze alone put any kind of restriction to my choice of GUI? I would also be interested in using my programs for commercial purposes, so would this put again some other kind of limitations to my GUI choice? I have read many good stuff about PySide, but still i do not know wether this is the one that i should choose. Is PySide same as PyQT and PyQT4 and QT or which is the exact relationship between those? Disadvantages - advantages, capabilities, benefits, costs, etc. (What is the lowest possible cost of buying such a commercial license for my programming?. Are there different versions and should i be careful
l to choose the best for me? Where could i get this from? PySide is total free for my commercial needs?) I need to be legit so i guess i should learn how to handle with the licencing thing. Please somebody clear things for me.

cx_Freeze has good support for Tkinter, PyQt, and (as far as I know) 

License: Qt is LGPL. PyQt is GPL or commercial. PySide is, I believe, 
the same as Qt itself. I'm not sure how mature or well-supported PySide 
is, in general.

wxPython is LGPL with a commercial exception clause, which allows you to 
use it in closed-source apps.

Tkinter, as part of the stlib, has a very liberal license (BSD-style), 
as does Tcl/Tk, which allows for free use in commercial apps.

Hope this helps,
