Source products; source and binaries are made available for free
through the Python and JPython websites…”

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,

preferred language for end-user programming,” says Joe Ellsworth,
