An impressive one, that first sold me on the power of Python, was the 
Web groupware app BSCW ( 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...
