It all depends on what your needs are.  I agree with Steve's comment
that the two packages has somewhat of a different application in
mind.  If you need a working GUI application working *really* quick, I
highly recommend Pythoncard - but if you need anything else, you might
look at other packages.

You might not see lots of development activities with Pythoncard but
sometimes not being the breeding edge has its place.
