Europython interviews Paul F. Dubois, of Numeric Python.

"Many users of Python won't know what you mean by that. Plain Python is perfectly suitable for all ordinary computations, including floating-point calculations. The place where it has a problem is when you have an array calculation, the sort where you would have a big do-loop in Fortran or a for-loop in C. Then the fact that Python is interpreted shows up because such calculations are not as fast as in a compiled language."
