Python is the best and most popular general purpose scripting language; the universal scripting language

Ok, "scripting language" is perhaps an extremely imprecise term. But,
some folks will still use it in describing Python; and I'm not sure
that is a bad thing.

I still think that Python can be meaningfully described as being the
best general purpose scripting language, sort of the Swiss Army Knife
of programming languages. No matter how many programming languages you
might already know, Python will give you a wide range of advantages in
an awful lot of problem domains. On the other hand, if you are a
business analyst or program manager and you are only going to learn
one language, Python would be the best choice for you also.
