I've used wxPython on Windows and I like it -- it produces a GUI that 
looks and feels like users expect it should.  It was easy to work with 
and had all the features I needed for that project.  I haven't tried it 
on other platforms -- curious to hear reports from anyone who has.  The 
fact that it runs on Mac OS X (as the wxDesigner screenshots attest :-) 
is a big plus.
