Python is a computer programming language created initially by Guido Van Rossum, who released it to the world as an “Open Source” “Free”program. It has since then been progressively improved by the contributions of hundreds of computer programmers around the world. The Python package can be downloaded gratis from the internet for every major computing platform in existence. It can be used and even modified for just about any purpose.

Since I've been working at UofC I've grown rapidly to Python, its pretty excellent.

Very reminiscent of the BASIC I used on my Commodore 64 :)
There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

I guess so, python is supposed to be nice and simple and you dont have to compile the code to get it to work - it has some very nice array operations that also make it fast... still though not as fast as FORTRAN or C.
