I run Linux at home, using a mixmash of GNOME and Linux applications... I would rather have learned either Qt or GTK, and not a "third" toolkit. Yes, GTK compiles on Windows too and is "more" GPL, but it's not ready even for experienced C coders to use (GIMP/Win32 is an exception).

In fact, at least boa I couldn't get to work, either.

I'm using different wxGTK/wxPython versions for a couple of month, and
beside the usual small probs, it's working fine.
(wxGTK 2.2., wxPython 2.2., python 1.5.2, linux)
My probs so far arose from locale handling of python, GTK, wxGTK, mySQLdb
in the mix, grid issues (biggest one resolved last night ;-), and some
memory leaking from the wx libs (which is addressed in the CVS version,
but haven't tried it, yet).
I never got my work done that fast before...
Boudewijn, if you're willing to try it one more time, I'm willing to
help you to get things going!

When I originally designed Perl 5's OO, I thought about a lot of this stuff,
and chose the explicit object model of Python as being the least confusing. So
far I haven't seen a good reason to change my mind on that.
