Thank you both for the replies
Ya, I have an old Linux/XFCE laptop that I keep in the garage. Ironically, even though it's old and the processor seems anemic compared to modern computers, it's still has a very snappy, fast feel to it when just surfing the web or performing simple tasks.
I will put Python on it and begin using it more.
Because I've only installed Python on my machines running various flavors of Windows, I was under the assumption that Tkinter (?) was just part of Python and "everyone" had it.
My primary goals involve (1) ease of use, and (2) compatibility when sharing my programs with others.
Oh, I inquired about joining the Python group here in Atlanta - I look forward to meeting them and I hope my work schedule (3 jobs) will allow me to visit with them each month.
Thanks very much,
When I'm in a difficult situation and there seems to be no possible solution, for some reason I always feel a little better, have a little more optimism when I remember the scene where George Jetson screams "Jane! Stop this crazy thing!"
