Is IronPython real Python?

P: n/a
I know that IronPython and CPython are different in that one does not
use the .net framework, but are they both really the same Python
language. From my basic understanding, it will depend on what the
programmer's goal is as to which of the two would be used, but I
didn't know if they were really the same language.

CPython is main implementation. The other implementations, PyPy,
Jython, and IronPython, are always playing catchup to CPython, so you
can't expected the latest CPython features in all the implementations.
