Is it me or does Hardy run like a pig?

Although I was going on about the size and lack of speed of python
code VS C, I still write 99% of my code with Python these days. It is
a wonderful language and the older computers now are struggling with
it but give it 5 years and may code will run on anything! I LOVE Panda
3d!!!

Check out this program. I has a 3d animated panda walking around a
patch of rocks and bamboo with the camera soaring around filming it.
Lets so you code that in assembly! LOL. Not only is the program short
but non programmers can ALMOST read it.

I think that it would be great fun to include panda3d in *Ubuntu as
part of the standard install and then use it for making a new desktop
to replace KDE, Gnome etc. You could do one like Neuromancer and there
would not even be that much code. Talk about eye candy. BTW the
license has been changed to be fully open source now. That being the
reason it is not even in the repos now.
