Have an icon that you would like to share?
I agree, Python is an excellent language. I just wish that more
companies would give it a more serious look.
Probably, the main source of resistance is the fact that the makers of
Python do not provide a free, RAD (Rapid Application Development) tool
that allows users to quickly and easily build GUIs visually, such as
Java's Netbeans (www.netbeans.org) or Microsoft's Visual Basic. Most
programmers like an easy-to-use RAD that allows users to quickly and
easily develop GUI applications. Unfortunately, until Python is able to
strongly complete in this area, most companies will continue to believe
that Python is mostly a cute, somewhat enabled scripting tool.
