An impressive one, that first sold me on the power of Python, was the 
Web groupware app BSCW (bscw.gmd.de). It was definitely way ahead of its 
time as far back as 1996, and I have yet to see anything approaching its 
functionality/ease of use ratio in the open source world of today (yes, 
Zope does more, but Zope is hard :-).
Interestingly, BSCW started out as open source before it got trendy, and 
went against the times by going commercial in 1998...
