In my daily work, I work on very large,

Python is about the best fit you can get amongst all the other languages.

but it is sort of a restricted subset.
- Guido van Rossum

Now, it's my belief that Python is a lot easier than

C++ or Java at the same time because all the details
of the languages are so much harder.
Other scripting languages really don't work very well there either.
- Guido van Rossum
