This isn't a really clear-cut issue right now. I prefer the gr-qtgui (which uses Qt and QWT as well as their Python versions), but qtgui is still missing a few features that would really make it production-ready. I'm working in these things now, though. I find the Qt implementations to have a better look and feel than the Wx stuff, and the concept of signals and slots gives it a lot of power, which I am working on building more into the UI.

My main hope for Qt-GUI is that it will exercise fewer edge cases (or not use at all) in OpenGL.  I have an app that still, occasionally,
  dumpeth the core on *some* platforms due to bugs deep in the bowels of the OpenGL "ecosystem".

But I agree that gr-qtgui as it currently exists is missing some features that would make it production-ready, including splitting out
  the individual components of the current qtgui "megasink", and strip-chart type features (basically, everything that wxgui currently
