Marine1: I think I'm gonna use Python more and more as time goes on, but there's a ways to go as far as running Python on everything, which isn't necessarily Python's fault.

On the other end of the stuff I work with, Python is built into chipsets now.

That's nuts. In a good way.

I've never see the main page for Stack Overflow. I've only gone there directly to answers through Google.

Marine1: IntertubeUser: Marine1: As a student who uses C# for research stuff... I can confirm this. It's saved my ass more times than I like to admit.

palladiate: Still didn't save them from using C#.

I think you'll see more and more people using it as we move forward. Since Oracle has fumbled Java so badly, C# has become a viable option for multiplatform development. Microsoft seems more than happy to support Xamarin, Mono, Unity, etc. on their quest to build open-source libraries for the CLR.

<cough>Python 3.X</cough>

What about it?

If you're talking about multiplatform development, Python has a metric shiat ton going for it.

If your language uses a stack, it sucks.
