Wth respect to coldfusion, is there much doubt about the fact that Python is
a more prominent and important technology?
How is colfusion percieved by the Python community? Many people belive
coldfusion is becomeing irrelavant and is on its death bed - do Python folk
generally feel this way about it?
Thanks for your input on this by the way.
