Btw,I am biased to PyGTK ;)
My critique about Wx is it's buggy (dunno about 2.5) and it is an
unnecessary extra layer over another cross-platform toolkit (gtk).
That's wxWidgets, and wxPython is another layer over it :)
Windows people cry about the look of PyGTK apps in Windows. They must use this
I heard that getting gtk+ with threads to work on Windows is quite troublesome.
Also IMO, the api of Gtk+ is very simple. There are free tools to
help you in glade development like Glade, ...
The best place to download gtk+,glade,.. libraries (which PyGTK
depends on) for Windows is http://gladewin32.sourceforge.net/
