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'd first have to get wxPython to install. Over the past two years, I've
tried repeatedly, but I only once succeeded, and then wxPython segfaulted
over its own example applications. (Just like PyGTK did when I succeeded
in installing it.)
