Non-Programmer's Tutorial for Python 3/FAQ

How do I make a GUI in Python? 
You can use either TKinter at http://www.python.org/topics/tkinter/ or PyQT4 at http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/ or PyGobject at http://live.gnome.org/PyGObject For really simple graphics, you can use the turtle graphics mode import turtle
How do I make a game in Python? 
The best method is probably to use PyGame at http://pygame.org/
How do I make an executable from a Python program? 
Short answer: Python is an interepreted language so that is impossible. Long answer is that something similar to an executable can be created by taking the Python interpreter and the file and joining them together and distributing that. For more on that problem see http://www.python.org/doc/faq/programming/#how-can-i-create-a-stand-alone-binary-from-a-python-script
(IFAQ) Why do you use first person in this tutorial? 
Once upon a time in a different millenia, (1999 to be exact), an earlier version was written entirely by Josh Cogliati, and it was up on his webpage http://www.honors.montana.edu/~jjc/easytut and it was good. Then the server rupert, like all good things than have a beginning came to an end, and Josh moved it to Wikibooks, but the first person writing stuck. If someone really wants to change it, I will not revert it, but I don't see much point.
My question is not answered.
