I didn't think they were uneducated, they were good questions.
At least if one understands that the problem is that the /end user/
percieves a problem.

I hope people are less hesitant to install "interpreted" applications today
than they were ten years ago.

I also believe it's better to convince the end user to install Python before
installing the application[1], rather than to try to sneak in an interpreter
with py2exe or something -- an interpreter which the end user cannot update,
manage or use for other things.


[1] Might be hard to convince people who have ever installed a Java
    interpreter -- when I do that on Windows, I usually break at least one
    existing Java application, and I usually get a whole lot of useless
    desktop icons, a funny thing in the system tray, etc.
