Python has to be one of the more interesting languages I've seen. Its syntax is clear and easy to pick up. It is multi-platform. It is optimized per platform so it is very fast. In fact, in many ways it is a better choice than Java. Developers seem to be afraid to make commercial applications in python, and go with Oracle instead. They assume that since it is OSS, it will be easier to crack. Don't get me wrong, every python app I have ever cracked was a one byte fix, but that cannot be blamed on the language. Note that obfuscation is available, but I have yet to see in it use. This language has been around for 20 years, and its usage is bound to continue to increase.
Those familiar with reversing Java, .Net, or VB P-code apps will feel right at home with Python. One thing to note is that Python has no decompiler yet. Luckily, Python byte-code is very readable. We will get to that in a bit.
