This probably indicates that Python in not well enough described as "best"
for certain domains while Ruby isn't as humble ;-)

No need for quotes either :-).

Just type programming and Python is second. First is C. And I thought
Python wasn't getting enough press :-).

Now I have something to bash on the heads of people who say "Python?
What's that?"

Hoo Boy!

The obvious answer, of course, is that on the newsgroup/mailing list
for language X, define "best programming language" to be X. It saves a
lot of combustion :)

http://dmoz.org/Computers/Programming/Languages/

suggests that between Befunge and BETA there is space for "Best" waiting to
be filled by an audacious developer. Good name for Python 3.0, maybe...

I've already seen Best Computers.

Is there a www.thebestwebsite.com?

The answer is left as an exercise for the reader.

Rufus

The Best Programming language, geez.

Shortly followed by The Worst Programming Language,
Or how about :

The
Absolute
Worst
Programming
Language

or TAWPL (for the non-english natives - rhymes with TOPPLE, which is what
happens
when you write in it).

There is no such thing as a "best programming language" of course. It
depends on your goals.

But yes, Ruby, Python and Scheme are very good at many things, and
especially (as mentioned recently by Paul Graham) at hacking and doing
conceptually complex things (as most dynamic languages).

Or, try comp.lang.functional, where the flame wars often denigrate
"corporation" (read: OO) programmers in favor of the High Priests
of Fuctional Programming.

From which the conclusion is obvious: While C can
be used for programming, it doesn't deserve to
be called a language. :-)

So python is built on top of something that is not a language at all ?
