StickyBun, if you're going to resurrect a long-dead thread, please add a little more to the discussion. Why do you think Python is so clearly the correct choice?

Did this offend you somehow that I didn't elaborate enough? Odd. I think its relevant because its changed somewhat significantly in the last 6-7 years. People much smarter than me on this board could elaborate more eloquently.

The reason being that I see is consistently been on the top 5 list of trending and popular languages to learn and become proficient at. Open source is huge today. Java is the obvious choice, but I didn't even see Python on his list, although this thread was started quite some time ago. It seems to be an obvious choice? But I understand that some developers aren't in love with it.
