I've used wxPython ( for a few GUI projects and found 
it ok. It's a wrapper for the wxWidgets C++ library. There's even a 
reasonable free GUI builder, wxGlade, which I use as I prefer 
constructing GUI's that way rather than writing raw wxPython code. Never 
tried any of the paid for GUI builders.
Disadvantage is the download page only provides builds for Python 2.6 or 

Does anyone know how Project Phoenix is coming on? shows wxPython working with Python 
Comments on how stable it is and how easy to install would be helpful.
