Iszael: It's as mainstream as any language at this point, just more less readable than most.


FTFY. Dynamic typing is unreadable.

I know everyone seems to love Python, but I just don't get it.  Maybe it's just having spent too much time on Windows?  I don't know.  I use a fair bit, but I'm certainly not an expert.  Still, I'm never like, 'Oh sweet, I'll use Python'.  It's always like, 'ehhhh, well, ugh...the source code for this is in Python.....well, I guess I'll use it'.

Iszael: I use Python every day.  My clients rely on it for "important stuff".  It's as mainstream as any language at this point, just more readable than most.


Everybody remember Apple's recent Goto Fail bug? Literally impossible in Python, because indentation and nesting can't contradict each other.
