Indeed,
python is a great programming language.
May be it was not marketted as much as languages like java or not as
much as platforms like rails.
But who cares?  I must mention here that I am totally blind and the
talking software (screen reader ) I use on GNU/Linux called Orca is also
programmed using python.

And I make web applications and off late started to use pylons (  again
centered around python).
I see that python is for 2 kind of programmers.
one which are absolute beginners to programming itself who want to learn
the scientific art of programming and the second is the extreme experts
who need the power and performance nicely balanced.

Great work!

happy hfacking.
Krishnakant.
