The adiabatic approximation to positronic atoms and molecules was considered as an option to the computationally unfeasible methods that treat all particles in a common footing, in two different approaches communicated in the 37th PSPA. Here we present further assessment and comparison of the two approaches as a way of evaluating the potential of adiabatic or, as we found preferable, molecular approaches.
