Hi all  I previously made a post (
Python is a gem, you need to keep pushing it ....)

about how impressed I was with python and how im suign it in a proposed
commercial app.

Got a call on Friday a company with a very succesfull product in Visual
Basic (Front End) SQL (Backend) wanted to move from Microsoft products due
to all the problems with MDAC (ADO etc), XP networking issues .... and
concerns with microsofts control ///

Well after three hours looks like Python (and linux and mysql) may have won
again, explained perl (semantic nightmare but a great language) , ruby
(great language but lack of libraries) etc, Vb's weaknesses and the need for
vendor neutrality anyway, as things move ill put some updates on here ...
and tell you ho it goes, ....

Hey, im trying very hard to promote it :-)
