Python's syntax is relatively simple and uncluttered, which makes it 
easy to pick up.  It's more closely related to C and Java than Erlang, 
though the wealth of list operations often escapes C and Java 
afficiondos to begin with.  Python is also very expressive.  You can 
generally accomplish more with less, using Python instead of one of the 
C family of languages.  Python is also quite robust, since you don't 
have to deal with pointers or memory management: everything is an 
instance of an object.
