Actually I do think technology is by far the *less* important think, when
you look at the reasons behind the decisions of most firms. 

I don't think a new logo will help a lot in making Python more "respectable",
but even if it help a bit, making Python more "visible", it would be okay.

What I think is a significate step in the right direction is the 
fact that now Python 2.3 is being shipped will all the new OS X 
Macintosh boxes. That's something.
If we could have Python shipping with all Windows boxes and Jython shipping 
with the Java SDK, THEN Python could take over the world ...
