Well different languages are better at different things

In python if something is *really* performance critical you spend some 
time and write it in C (never got it to work myself but seen others do it).

Python is (IMHO) a great high level language, and I love the fact that I 
don't have to worry about so much. I would not expect someone to rewrite 
  the kernel of a mainframe in Python though, I would guess C or maybe 
C++ would be a better language for this.

Does that make sence? If not blaim my powers of expression :-(
