"Python is an increasingly popular high-level computer programming language, especially suitable for cross-platform rapid application development, website creation, and steering of scientific applications. Python also seamlessly integrates with Java, through the JPython compiler. Python and JPython are Open Source products; source and binaries are made available for free through the Python and JPython websites..."

"In the Python Consortium, partners in industry and government join forces to ensure Python's continued support and development. Initial Consortium partners are the Lawrence Livermore National Laborarory in Livermore, CA; Hewlett-Packard in Cupertino, CA; Digital Creations in Fredricksburg, VA; Interet Corporation in Millburn, NJ; and Foretec Seminars in Reston, VA."

"Python is a major component of our e-speak solutions and is our preferred language for end-user programming," says Joe Ellsworth, R&D section manager of Hewlett-Packard's OSO/e-speak division."
