What cross-platform GUI toolkit can work for both Mac, Linux and Windows?
 
I'm trying to persuade my classmate migrating to linux but they always fall back to windows when homeworks require creating GUI (graphical user interface) applications. Not only because C# and Window forms/WPF is so sissily easy to use. But some teachers only test homework on Window machine.

I have tried pyGTK and wxPython but they have some flaws. wxPython seem a little bit messy with so many look-alike class name and it's ID based event binding is somewhat awkward. pyGTK seems nice and neat but it doesn't have Mac port yet.

What about you guys? What are you using? I don't mean to start flame with this post, just longing for some opinion. Please share some of your ideas to me.

Plain GTK+, QT and FLTK.

If it's for "good-looks", QT looks nice on any platform (it's heavy though).

I have been using Tcl and Tcl/Tk on both Linux and Windows. I have not been able to spot any differences between the two platforms.

Qt, gtk+, wxWidgets. FLTK too, but it is not that widely used in general.
