This is an old post, but I'm new so... I'll reply since no one else did.
Just curious how you are liking Python 2 monthes later? Is it what you expected?
I'm still fairly new to programming. Working on C++, and then I'll be moving on to Perl once I'm comfortable enough with C++.
My choice for C++ was: 1st My friend is learning it in University and said I should as well so it will help when I go there. 2nd Thats what the Linux Kernel is mostly written in!
