I'm pro-Python, too, but I'm not going to start spreading propaganda.
Google uses Java extensively.  Java, Python, and C++ are the three
"official" languages at Google; meaning that anything an employee wants to
deploy to production server must be written in one of those three
languages.  I don't really like Java, but Google _does_ use it.  Let's
straight talk here.
