Python is great language. There is nothing wrong with it IMHO. As a
bonus it is open source.
Python has many advantages and features: see python.org.
When I say "not fast" I meant no critism.
Maybe I should have said "not for computation intensive problems". Not
as fast as c or c++.
I didn't mean to say it is slow. It is great for most business
I believe it is possible to write parts of a python app in C++ is
needed. I have never needed to do this.
Also maybe I should have said "less popular than C++" "not as many hits
on monster for python programmers"
