I work for a small security company. Everyone here knows all about open 
source and at least heard about Python. I don't think anyone besides me
actually thinks of Python as a language for developing real applications.

They are very much aware of the productivity benefits of Python and know
how quickly I create all kinds of tools and scripts with it but fail to
make the logical conclusion that if it's so good for me it might also be 
good for them. Perhaps they are just reluctant to learn anything new.
