I'm not sure *everyone* still thinks CS is really about Java.
At SIGCSE we had 100+ people at the special session on teaching with
Python. Plus there were sessions and other talks about getting back
to basics in CS education.
David Ranum and I just did a workshop called "Exploring Python as a
Teaching and Learning Language" at the Central Plains CCSC conference
last week and had 35+ in attendance.
In talking with publishers and educators at the conferences there is
a pretty consistent message that Python is picking up steam.
