    I like python myself.

    I use it for test scripts and other on the fly engineering uses. For that it really is ideal.

    That said I would not use it to code anything complicated as I prefer other languages for those tasks.

    Python's fast enough for virtually anything except truly high-performance software (real-time stock trading, some scientific computing, cutting-edge 3D games, etc.)
    last i heard Python was close to be the de-facto language for stock trading... but i may remember wrong.

    this. write the heavy stuff in C and the rest in Python to optimize development time.

    I'm sure I read something similar about google way back when.
