IIRC it was library issues -- for one thing I still find it a lot
harder to manage an MS Windows GUI under Python than I do under .NET
(I've never succeeded in getting Iron Python to run properly). In one
sense you could argue that that's not a language issue, and you'd be
right: there's nothing in the syntax or semantics of either language
that makes it so. But in another sense I'd say it is a language issue
(and of course I think I'm right!) because Python aims to be platform
independent, and whilst that means gains in portability it means that
in return it loses the ease-of-programming of a tightly integrated
