This is the other part of the problem. Vpython uses quite a few CPU
cycles to keep track of everything you're doing to it and to draw
I have Debian GNU/Linux (kernel 2.4.17) with python 2.2 and 2.1 with
vpython for both of them. It works fine, but uses a significant
portion of my CPU (Duron 750). I'm also using the VESA framebuffer as
the video driver, and it is not high-performance.

Seeing how you're working with windows, a reinstall may do the trick
for you. Too bad '98 doesn't have any meter so you can see how hard
your CPU is cranking.
For when quality, reliability
and security just aren't
