There was a meeting of the Python-IL (Israel) smallish community tonight where I talked a bit about wxPython.
I went there in a firm intent to write some code and show some neat cross-platform tricks that are possible with the framework, but instead spent quite a lot of time looking a the blue screen of death which seemed to appear every time I was getting a bit deeper into the technical side of my lecture.
At one (quite amuzing actually) point, I got annoyed with the fact that the right Shift key didnâ€™t work very well and slammed it with considerable force about three or four times. It was very satisfying to once again behold the BSOD, and reboot yet again.
Nontheless I hope the folks that havenâ€™t fallen asleep during the talk enjoyed themselves and maybe even picked up a thing or two about wxPython, XRCed and Tuzigâ€™s secret plans (well, at least they were until today) to take over the world.
Just to sum up the talk, here are screenshots of the small app I have tried to build in the process. This is how it looks with no change in the code on Windows XP, Windows 2000, Linux and a Mac:
