Actually, the Enthought Python Distribution ("Enthon") is not the  
same as the Enthought Tool Suite ("ETS"), which includes Traits,  
Envisage, Chaco, and other libraries.  The former is Windows-only  
right now, but the latter runs well on Windows, Linux, and (mostly) Mac.

Chaco runs on linux, and until I fix some things and get it working  
for Mac natively, I actually develop it in Ubuntu running in  
Parallels on my mac.
