That's interesting. I'm obviously looking at the long term trend from
the outside and from a place where more or less everyone _has_ heard
of Python. Would it be fair to say that "haven't heard of it" is the
greater factor than not taking it seriously once it's heard of? I'm
somewhat guessing but it sounds like you've been successful in getting
adopters. 5-10 years ago I certainly heard much more often that
management simply refused flat out to consider Python even _after_
something working has been implemented very quickly with it. Or is
that still happening?
