I just assume this is true at all times. Just like I assume we (the United States) are inside the Chinese and Russian networks at some level.

Python is great for lightweight, cross-platform work. I'm actually really liking being able to write code in Windows, mock the hardware stuff with silly duck-typed classes, and then when I'm ready, copy it over to Debian and watch it work.
Would I use Python for anything major? Hell no. Not when you can write:
[ does something]
[ does something else]
And the damn thing runs (the second one), even though there are two function with exactly the same name! What BS is that?
The question is more like under which conditions or in which context the two can exist at the same time. This is exactly why I'm not constantly on the lookout for the next great programming language. I need a single one which lets me see what's going on without reading the entire code base or drawing the right conclusions.

"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."
If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
On most other industry news sites, my computer falls under immediate attack from malware and ads and worthless flash which covers the page. its Worst than even dirty sites!! Sounds start playing, a garbage instantly moves on top of the link I wished.
Thank you codeproject for having a clean page, not a shockwave flash trap of computer death.
