OSNews, Generic OSes Even though news has been slow the entire week due to the fact that it's summer and people are more interested in vacation than in technology news, we still had a lot of interesting stuff this week. Google obviously captured the headlines with its Chrome OS, but we also talked about Mono, Richard Stallman, and many other things.

Python is indeed very nice but as I found out it is better for smaller, quick apps and scripting. I definitely admire Python but wouldn't develop more complex apps with it. Dynamic typing can lead to annoyingly trivial bugs that might pop up well into production use. With a statically typed language a compiler would catch those early on. PyChecker might come to the rescue but as far as I know there isn't one for newer versions of Python.
"Java give you jitters? Relax with wxPython!" - one could say, but I find myself going the opposite route.
