Java "Although the .NET vs. Java war is basically over for control of the Windows desktop, where .NET is sure to become the managed language of choice for new Windows desktop applications, there is a new battle brewing. That battle is for the Linux desktop. Now that Java has been open sourced under the GPL, even the most strict of the 'free software only' distributions can start bundling it and integrating it into their Linux distributions out of the box."

How do we define complex software? How does static typing make developing complex software easier?

http://pygtk.org/applications.html

On that page you'll find a list of applications ranging for UML editors, auditor editors, video editors, audio streamers, to full blown games all written in Python. Python is excellent for written any kind of software regardless of complexity. The whole "dynamically typed languages is not good for writing 'complex' software" is a silly myth.
