Let's give Java its due respect, and Python its due respect.  J2EE does have a considerable amount of emphasize in the business world, along with creating some open source efforts (www.jboss.org and www.enhydra.org).  But Python should be used more in the business world.  Unfortunately, it is not.

"A few billion here, a few billion there, and pretty soon you're talking

wants to make real money develops in Java!
