How about Java v.s. Python? Obviously I'm not looking for unbiased  
unanswer :) I just want to hear more opinion.

A few years ago the job market of Java v.s. Python is like 97% to 3%. I  
think Python has made significant gain since then. All those tasks that  
are very involving in Java, like doing web services, especially with ws-*  
protocol, become fairly trivial in Python. Outside of work I have started  
a number of geeky projects, all of them are base on Python. I haven't  
touched Java in a few years and I wonder how does it fair today.
