Hello all.

I have decided to begin GUI programming, using Python. All the Python books I
have contain information on Tkinter - but all the Tk apps I have used tend to be
pretty drab looking, and out-of-date. I am just using poor applications, or is
Tkinter outdated? I would like an honest opinion before I start, so I don't
waste my time.

A guru friend of mine said that Tk is a bad choice - he recommended gtk. Does
anyone use pygtk? How stable/complete is it? Does anyone know where I can find
some documentation on how to use it (other than on gtk.org, which documents
only gtk in C).

What about wxPython? How good is that? 

I am primarily concerned primarily with appearence, and ease of use for a
newbie, followed by portability (ideally, *NIX, and Windows).
