1. Python is fun!
2. Python is cool!
3. Most of the time you can google a solution, i.e. somebody has already
done nearly everything you can think of.

Subject: Fortran vs Python - Newbie Question
I've been told that Both Fortran and Python are easy to read, and are
quite useful in creating scientific apps for the number crunching, but
then Python is a tad slower than Fortran because of its a high level
language nature, so what are the advantages of using Python for
creating number crunching apps over Fortran??
