Am I the first to think about switching from Java to something else, with the latest announcement from Sun that Java will not be open-sourced? Is it the principle of it, or is it just a trend? I don't feel comfortable with something that is controlled by a company who may not have my interests, or the interests of a wider community, but hey, I bought into that when I took java on. I also like the way that Big Blue is trying to get Sun to open Java, but have few contributions themselves (will websphere ever be opened up?)
So, Python beckons - and looks nice too. How does it compare with the multiple widgets system, and which one to chose?
