Python one-ups Java in Consumer Land
  Posted November 19, 2003    PermaLink    Comments (0)  

So I spent most of the afternoon setting up and transferring data for my new HP computer (a250n for those who care). Boy you wouldn't believe the junk that comes pre-installed with a consumer model. But when I was uninstalling the junk that had unistallers I was astonished to see that one of the items that came pre-installed was Python 2.2.1 and the win32 extendsions. But Java wasn't. Python, yes Python was on my consumer PC. I don't know why, I can't find any *.py* files.

So Java, with sun behind it has to play second fiddle to Pyton being the pre-installed suprise. Who'de of thunk?
