Any chance one of them is more/less bug-crashy than the other? I know both are availiable on the website but just asking.. If i installed this package on windows 8, should i have any problems? From what i read PyQt supports only xp and win7.

I have zero expirience on PyQt so either way, everything is going to be new to me, so i dont care that much about the learning curve diference between new and old PyQt - Qt version. I did not find any installer so i guess i should customly do everything. Any guide for this plz?
> Id also like to ask.. Commercial licence of PyQt can only be bought on riverbank's website? I think i noticed somewhere an other reseller "cheaper one" or maybe i didnt know what the hell i was reading :). Maybe something about Qt and not PyQt.

Short answer without explanation. It does not work.
