Python & Microsoft

Posted 29 January 2006 - 07:41 AM

Like almost everybody knows Google uses Python in their applications. That's not a new subject. But this one is. Microsoft became the one of the superior supporter and sponsor of Python... But why? For me they got huge plans with this "opensource" language. I know that's not suiting to microsoft's job. Microsoft always sold and will sell the worst thing for the money. But tehy can't sell Python (if they'll buy it i mean)... So what da ?! going on here?

M$ interest in Python was developed by the scripting language's popularity, and the fact that python scripting is one of the most portable ways to move between *nix systems and windows systems. M$ decided it would be to their advantage to capitalize on that functionality (and it would be), albeit with a bit of a twist. They are developing IronPython...an implementation of Python for the .NET framework. You can get some more information here.
