I might be a little biased, but surely is the best "program"
written entirely in Python ;-)

Other really cool Python projects are Launchpad
( and Trac ( And of
course most Linux desktop distributions (especially Ubuntu and
Redhat/Fedora) have a huge number of small components that rely on
Python entirely or to put together the frontend. Great examples of
this are Bazaar VCS and the Anaconda installer.

The Twisted project isn't a program per se, but it's written in Python
and is really incredible as well.

Google's Mondrian code review system is written in Python and looks
really amazing. I just wish I could try it out :-)
