You guys can say anything you'd like it to be in this thread, but the
actual reason comes down to
1. No marketing. Seriously, if Microsoft was pushing Python it would
obviously be a lot bigger in terms of developers.
2. No certification. Millions go to college to get degrees in computer
related study. Do the math.

Also, really guys? This crap about speed? People have been saying this
for years, and yet they still don't realize that there are plenty
solutions to take care of that one problem.

Just be happy that you've stumbled upon Python, just because it's not
the most widespread language in the world certainly doesn't mean it's
not a worthy language. Quite the opposite.
