Thorham:It is difficult to assess the time about how Python is slower, if you understand it. I am an amateur programmer in Python and programs only in Python. One algorithm (convert text to a different character set in the range of 2000 lines) that my PC did in 0.6 seconds - the Amiga, if I remember correctly, I had set the A1200 performance done in 32 seconds. But it was PC vs. Amiga. I know that the speed penalty is extreme. He's also using Python under OS3.x at your own risk!
Here is a small sample of simple animation, first is unleashed under emulation without a speed penalty (A3000 would have already had too handle, A4000 absolutely no problems and then give power to the A1200). Text is Czech.

Amiga was the best computer user, because it was and is a good computer. It is true that the quantity does not determine quality, but success did not come about Python completely without merit as Amiga.
