With wxWindows/wxPython they too have a very good
support by their e-mail-Lists.
Further more, if can and will pay one of the core developers
as much or even just halve the money you have to pay to
Trolltech as a professional, I am very shure, you get at least
the same quality of support as well as the same

Re: What about Java?
So why did I switch from Java to Python/wxPython and
restarted my project?
1. Java did not allow me to adapt the color and size of each
cell in a grid or table row individually to its content. With
wxPython I can adjust the color as well as the height and
width of each cell.
2. According to Bruce Eckel (author of 'Thinking in Java'

professional programmers, with Python, programming

afterwards, the programm is much easier to debug and to
3. Licence, Qualitiy and Money: I did use Borlands
J-Builder. On the first view, it was a nice toy. But you can
not use it for open Source development. It turned out to be
buggy and to complicated as I wanted to do more than the
the simplistic application they seemed to have in Mind.
Further more, J-Builder war expensive and every few month
the have a new expensive update.
So now I use EMACS with Python, wxPython and
wxDesigner instead, and I am very happy to have switched.
It is better quality, with a better licence for less money.
