Python is an excellent programming language - clear syntax, easy to learn.

And there are many people who learn Python!(including me)

What do you guys of Python? (NOT the snake, i'm talking about programming haha)

I do code in python these days. I'm currently stuck with the django for web development. Desktop development is much easier and you can learn it over time. I'm also going to spend some time working on programs in ironpython. Ironpython is basically a .NET compatible ptyhon, which is also used in mono. I hope you're already aware of mono.net.

I'm not sure why python is rated low than C/C++. I found it's easy to learn ptyhon than c/c++. I'm not religious in terms of language or faith, so any language that does my job is fine. I don't think there is any point in making any language better over others in terms of word of mouth or other publicity. It should just work, there is no need to get involved in any language emotionally. That's just my opinion.

Does Python environment need to be installed on the web server? Then, this could make a difference with C/C++, which only needs a runtime, mainly a library set.
Moreover, I feel Phyton like a code interpreter, not a compiler. This could raise some performance issues, if many simultaneous users are involved.
I have experienced some response times up to 15 minutes with Python, which is rather unacceptable for most of standard users.

Most of the linux servers come up with python installed like PHP. In comparison to php there are very few things needed for python. Only Django and some other data bindings are necessary. So not much of requirement. As for performance, python pages load quickly than most php page and are secure too. It's just that most of the linux distros that are popular rarely have packages for python. Take case of cpanel, there isn't any python package support for free license. There is one for paid linux package.

Hosting like dreamhost, come with python, ruby support. In fact, python is so easy to deploy on servers like dreamhost. Just run put the file in manager and run it on web browser. Like php, it'll run immediately. I guess the support currently lacks because of less python demand and django's alpha infancy.

Yes it is interpreter but for web development it hardly matters. Because ruby is also interpreter and you see many possibilities with ror. Not much of performance issues that i have seen so far.

I'm not sure where you observed 15 minutes response, but most of the news sites that are hosted under django loads quickly. Even with their huge media content. This must be server issue and python support.

Python is really becoming a good and useful language with a good syntax, I only see PHP in Web as I don't even want to see it somewhere else, even though it's a scripting language with an interpter and you can use it through a cli to run scripts, but in my opinion, things need to be used in the right place, whenever I need to do something with Web, I do it with PHP, when I need a simple application for windows to do something, I do it with C# and don't need a lot of knowledge, but whenever I need to do something on the server, I like python! Even though I don't have a lot of knowledge using it, but as much as I tried, I really liked it and I know it can do a lot more, but I just don't need more.. ;)
