Python is a gem, you need to keep pushing it ....

I've been a hardcore python evangelist for 4-5 years, but in my experience
most developers are conservative when it comes to programming languages.
They tend to stick to what they know and avoid everything else. Especially
coders using compiled languages like Delphi/Pascal. They know some VB or
Perl and laugh when I bring up Python. But don't loose faith.

decided to use Python for a number of small projects. As a python addict I
really hope this works out! No offence, but I'd rather be using Emacs and
Python than the Delphi IDE. It is so much more fun and it runs on Linux
*and* Windows (ok and more.. but those are our target OS'es).
