I'm running Python 2.3.3 on Windows 2000 here at work, and while the
startup time isn't great (about 1 second) compared with Linux at home,
it's nowhere near that bad.

Is there some other process taking a lot of CPU time or RAM? Are you
talking about just starting Python itself - or are you running some
program written in Python? How long does it take just to start the
Python command-line shell by itself?
