Tim Bray noted that two of Python's leading developers are joining Sun. I'm pleased, along with all the others that have welcomed them. You can read what they have to say on their own blogs at Ted Leung, and Frank Wierzbicki.
When deciding to re-invest in my scripting skills last year I choose Python. I didn't do this for necessarily the best of reasons but I need to look inside planet planet and also a 3rd party plazes script, both of which are written in Python. I also spent several hours getting lost inside Red Hat's apt-get when I failed to install it properly a couple of years ago.
I bought the O'Reilly book, Learning Python but have got stuck on the exercises on method inheritance and overlays. I must get them finished this week, so I can read the next chapters on my next plane journey.
