there are some aspects:
1st) py2exed applications are "precompiled". Natvie Python scripts get
compiled from *.py to *.pyc or *.pyo, before the Python Virtual
Machine executes them.
2nd) py2exed applications are crunched together in less files, so
directory searches are minimized (also that should be a VERY minimal
3rd) "normally" all the scripts within a py2exe are put in one zip,
and it was reported more than once that access to files within one zip
is faster then access to multiple files on disk. In addition that in
most situation loading time is disk-bound, so that zip compressed
scripts to make a difference. Keep in mind, since we are talking about
kB, not MB, that these time differences are very very very small.
4th) "exe are faster" and "compiled software is faster". That
impression is based back to the times of c64 and vc20; and your mind
will do EVERYTHING to give you the impression that it is right.
