I have yet to get any Python application to install and run flawlessly. There is always some problem - the wrong Python version, some missing module, or something completely incomprehensible. To make things worse, most Python applications seem to come with their own installation idiosyncrasies which puts them outside the usual packaging mechanisms. Finally, to add insult to injury, the performance of Python's applications tends to be pitiful, when compared with their C/C++ counterparts.
