General Development IronPython is a new implementation of the Python language targeting the Common Language Runtime (CLR). It compiles python programs into bytecode (IL) that will run on either Microsoft's .NET or the Open Source Mono platform. Elsewhere, "A Byte of Python" is a free book (or free tutorial) on Python. It is meant to be a guide to anyone learning Python.

Very doubtful. Generics are just a way to get, well, genericity within a statically-typed language. Generics work when you know the type of a given variable whenever you call a method on it. In a dynamically-typed language like Python, where that is not the case, generics don't make much sense.
