I once wrote a rather small utility in python using Tkinter. My
co-workers wanted to use it, but they had Windows, and I wanted to
achieve better visual integration, so I replaced Tkinter with
wxpython. The resulting code was about 5-10% longer and felt like it
was several times slower - Tkinter version fired up instantly, while I
had to wait for a while to get wx version fully started. Eventually I
went with Tkinter, and with all quirks I added to make the app feel
more like typical Windows app it was still smaller and faster then
wxpython version.
