For the benefit of the less experienced people who should read this, 'java = fail' means about as much as "java is rubbish".
Do a little reading on the subject and you quickly identify for yourself where the value was and is in the java platform.

To name a few:
Platform Independence
Simplified Threading & networking
Establishment and spreading of pattern based standards,
In built exceptions,
memory management,
Virtual Machine,
Strict Compilation

Anything Java can do, Python can do better.

EDIT: 4700 POSTS YES

So what is python and why aren't we using it? Is it new or else why wasn't it used in the first place?

Can it be made to run out of the box? Is it customizable? AI?

Python is an interpreted programming language that runs through a virtual machine, sort of like Java but different. From my limited personal experiences with the two languages I would say I prefer Python, because of the more freeform syntax and structure that forgives me for not being that excited about using objects for everything. Urusan likes it too.

It wasn't used before because the programmers who started the project weren't familiar with it. And the advantages of using it over Java wouldn't be that big to make it sensible to start over using another language.

Why did you link that article at all? Is it even meant to be taken seriously? It makes a lot of assumptions and very bad comparisons, so it seems like this guy is trying to steal maddox's style but fails.
