It is sad that you consider learning something new to
be worthless. I used the term "worthlessware" in an
economical sense, meaning it has little or no commercial
value. However, from a learning standpoint I consider
it to be priceless.

You have a right to your opinion but I fail to see what
that has to do with the price of eggs. I picked Python
just because I wanted to learn it not because I had a
particular problem to solve. If your job was to advocate
Python, I would suggest you find another line of work.
