What makes Python so cool is that its designers (Guido and company) 
actually care about not making it hard for beginners, even children, to 
learn and understand it. That level of caring for beginners is very, very 
rare among language designers or software designers in general.

Funny thing, the more they use it the more the experts love Python too...

Beauty transcends, simplicity rules.
