Why not Visual Basic ;-)?

I don't think that python make anything better here.
If the language should be switched, it should be IMHO
C++. Python *can* reduce the development time, because
it come with a bunch of functions. A good C++ lib
do the same.

The goal of C/C++ is that you can port it to
any platform you like. With python, net or
other scripting languages you can only use the
platform where the VM exist.

Did you ever see the python C code?
It's worse ;-).

Best Regards,
