License of Python

P: n/a

Hi guys,

I'd like to use Python in a commercial application. In fact I would
like to write the application entirely in Python.
But I think I wouldn't like telling what language the application is
written in.
The problem is that including Python's license in the binary, which as
I understand is a must do, reveals that the appliation is based on
Python.

I'll appreciate your advices about this
Thanks

Expose Python as a user extension language, so it's obvious to
everyone that Python is present. Just how present it is, you don't
have to tell.

Why is the reason for that?

You can just include it since most users never mess through their
program files and most users doesn't even know what Python is, while
advanced users could guess that you use Python by seeing the file
extension being used (py, pyc, pyo).

My advice would be to create something of real value before you worry
about issues like this.
