I just picked up the new PyQt book. Tcl/Tk 8.5 is great for legacy apps that started with that tookit, but for new development in that market PyQt is kicking butt. Sometimes you just gotta let go of the old stuff.

This isn't a plug your own widget set. It is about the release of Tcl/Tk. PyQt...meh. If I was doing Python, I would go with wxPython over PyQt.

The question begged is: why don't they have a nice abstract GUI PEP that all of the adapter module writers can target?
I'd like to distribut a python egg that can just use whatever is installed. Make GUI writing as close to dumb-simple as HTML, for the 80% solution.
