That's the plain truth. Python 1.5.2 final release is of 13 April 
1999 <http://www.python.org/download/releases/1.5/>
JDK 1.2.2 came Friday, July 9, 1999 <http://www.cafeaulait.org/1999july.html>

By the time, Oracle8 installer was a Java application, and required 
*several* minutes just to load and start running. That's an example 
of java "speed" at that time.

We used to call Java "Ya va!", which in spanish means something like 
"Wait, I'm coming!" :)
