Everyone's got their favorite.  I like gtk, which has exactly the same
features you claim (works on same platforms) but really, the one that's
best integrated is the Tkinter, which was the first one that came with
Python, and runs on everything bigger than a cellphone.  It's not my
favorite myself, but if we're going to be really honest, it's really
probably the best one to recommend to folks.
