Thanks for the tip. I had looked at wxPython, and put aside dealing with it for a few reasons. The first was less intergration with the OS desktop... 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).

I wasn't too impressed with the free GUI builders for wxPython.

A comparitive review *would* be nice. I'm waiting for one to happen... maybe Boudewijn Rempt could get together with Camaron Laird and hash one together. :)

KDE2 was such an improvement that I got over that irritation over licensing and use it as my primary desktop. Switching applications is much harder so I continue to run GNOME apps under it. I look forward to the day of sharing preferences, desktop icons, and drag and drop. :)

Yes they do, and all require different tacts to fix them. Well... Tk doesn't need fixing... it needs to be taken behind the barn and shot in the head. :-D

Thanks for reminding me about the wxPython mailing list. I'll take a look...
