- ChinesePython - Yup, Python written in Chinese. Try to pretend that isn't a little sick
- PyPy - Jumping recursion batman! Python running on Python! That's just madness. (Utilizes JIT compilation)
- PyS60 - Python for Nokia's S60 software Platform. That's right, PyPhone!
I've used IronPython a little and I have to say I was impressed that I could use my Python scripts in conjuction with C#... easy and powerful GUI's anyone? Who else has used other implentations other than cPython? For what purpose? What did you think? Perhaps you feel like there's no reason to ever use a different implementation, if so, why?
For anyone who hasn't used another implementation, my "Challenge" to you is to try one! I recommend Jython or IronPython if you're not the adventurous type. For those of you willing to work a little outside the box, go for PyPy, it seems like a really fun implementation to play with. Of course maybe you'll want to try ChinesePython or Psycho.
