OS X apps will indeed be written in Swift; esp if they will be distributed from the Apple Store--- Python apps are streng verboten in Apple land.

OTOH, much of my Python work is done on the mac for the mac... just not distributed from the Apple Store.

OTOH, it only makes sense to code with Apple's tools if the app is going to be Apple Store ready.

OTOH, I don't view the mac as an "Apple" thing. My mac is a *nix clone (freeBSD variant) which is a stable platform for Python coding and debug|test. I won't be using Swift; however, I will be using IDLE.

    JFTR, Apple should have adopted Python3, IMHO.
