General Development Guido van Rossum, the creator of the Python programming language, has published on his blog an interesting status report for Python 3.0 ('Python 3000'), the upcoming major revision to the language scheduled for mid-2008. He discusses the rationale for redesigning the language, syntax changes, new features and libraries and inter-compatibility issues.

I've coded in Python since 2002. I love it. It's fast.

I agree. I picked up Python in mid-2005, because it was the scripting language of choice at my new job. I had been using Perl as my scripting language, and resisted the change, but after a couple of days of using Python, I got used to the indenting and lack of braces/semi-colons, and now I much prefer Python over Perl.

Just my own experience and preferences.
