Personally, I don't like Python. That is to say, I've learned a bit of
Python, and I don't like programming in it. But as Python is used by my
distribution's package management system ( Gentoo ), I have Python
installed on my system, and I've never really thought more about it.

What did Perl do to you anyway? Just curious.
