I hate RedHat for getting things going.
The python install on Macs sucks compared to Ubuntu or Debian. I still haven't managed to get pygame running on my Mini for my son to try out.
(*goes to see what the package is named and install it*)
Oooers, wxPython is already installed on my Ubuntu box. Well, that makes it even easier. ;-)
You should probably stop with the ridiculous generalizations about Linux...
