   If it is true, why are wasting your time with Python? It is a world that
speaks Java, Perl, PHP and C++.

   Thanks heavens you are completely wrong in this aspect. In my world
there is enough room for many different langauges and dialects. I pity you
if you live in such a narrow world. If you have any chance - go to a world
that allows more freedom! The world of Free Software!!!
