We use it for everything from automated tape handling and cleaning
systems to driving encoders and specialized TBCs as well as
controlling creaky old video decks. The core logic of our system is
also in python which using a little bit of Twisted ties together the
FreeBSD and Windows machines that the various daemons run on.

Though that doesn't answer your question since I guess that makes us
"programmers" whom I am sure own the lion's share of python usage.
