Since you can use Swing from Python, it seems a false
dichotomoty to choose between Java and Python based on how well
you like Swing.  [I've never used Swing from Python -- I don't
have very heavyweight computers and try to avoid anything
Java-related.]  Though you can probably find more Swing
examples in Java than in Python....
