This was just one example. Another one:


Luke and Elliott are no beginners, so it is at least difficult to use ECL:
On Windows it doesn't work with MinGW and on MacOS X there was at least one
case were it freezed. But as I have written, I didn't tried it myself, so
this is only some second hand experience. Maybe it is all wrong setups in
combination with Lispbuilder and ECL itself is stable, I don't know.

But I know that it is much easier to get a full featured running Python
system on Windows, MacOS X and Linux, so this is something where Lisp
distributions could be improved.
