If I were to us wxPython then I would be limited to Python 2.x at present. If I were to use PyQt I would have to pay, as I understand the licenses, for it to use in commercial programs and/or programs that I ask for donations. If I am not mistaken PyQT is available for Python 3. I am not familiar with PySide much other than I have heard, though, it is not being updated anymore.

Coming from development experience in Java I know how notorious and ugly GUI programming can be at times.

Doing development work at my day job in java/.net I just wanted to use something at home to tinker around with and do some hobby programming and perhaps sell something or such if I develop something useful. Python has struck my fancy.
