We have Java on one side and C# on the other. None of them is any good. By that I mean they are not free software. This is important, because Java, although available on many platforms, leaves some of them in the dark. Even more so for C#, where we can only hope projects like mono and DotGNU can help us (none of these two implementations is finished or complete yet).

What to do, why hasn't the OSS crowd delivered such a language? Well, they have. That language is called Python. Truly wonderful and easy to use and learn, it also combines a lot of things people want which are available in Java/C#, like the byte-code and ofcourse it's an object based, true platform independent programming language.

It runs well on all platforms. And is popular both on windows (you'll find many python applications for windows) as well as on the Linux desktop. If you haven't done so already, check it out now.
