Hi ,
What advantage does Python have over other languages ?
Are there any particular features that make it easier to work with?

Thanks,
Paul

What sold me was its simplicity, elegantly formatted code, and its explicitness...very easy follow.

I have been a hard core Java developer, but prefer to have small applications to be coded in Python rather than in Java. Definitely saves me time and integrates well if I intend to use it with my Java apps.
