What is your primary development platform?
How did you come to develop for both Windows and Ubuntu (Deb)?
One of the advantages of WxPython is it is cross platform. I develop the Windows apps first and then transfer the code to an Ubuntu system and adapt the code for that OS.
Why Ubuntu (Debian) vs. other distros?
Ubuntu seem to be the most popular, widely distributed, actively maintained and freely available distros for Linux. So it was the logical choice. Many who are new to Linux assume it refers to a single OS, but that not quite true. It refers to a common base, but many distros that are not necessarily compatinle. So I picked the most popular. I could also make a Mac edition, but i do not have a new enough Mac to run OS X 10.5. I have a 9 year old G4 I got from ebay, but it won't run 10.5. The new Macs are quite expensive.
Easy for a hillbilly to lean, free to get and distribute, lots of support, powerful, cross-platform. That's some of the main reasons.
