it seems that Python has surpassed Perl in popularity this month!

companies. Python is used in, Google, as everybody knows, but where

So, i think it's not all peaches and cream for Python yet.

However, am pretty sure it'll be so in the next couple of years.

(btw, for those perlers who wishes to learn Python, see a comparative
