[Tutor] .py vs .pyc

Could anyone tell me why I should use a .pyc file rather than a .py?  After
doing some research, I have found that a .py file is first precompiled and
then run, while a .pyc file is already precompiled and is simply run.  But
unless I'm mistaken, it seems that a .pyc is no faster or better than a .py
file.  When should I use a .py, and when should I use a .pyc?
