It is not trolling. > You obviously dont mean uses like Google, DropBox, YouTube, Reddit etc. > Perhaps you dont know about Eve Online? Mercurial? Blender? Absolutely none of these use python for anywhere near the same percentage of components as Qubes does. Google is a good example, for instance they shipped proto-buffers. Which have bindings in a long list of languages (20 or so). Check wikipedia for those examples, reality is much more sobering that you think. > There are exceptional developers working in many companies -Google, > NASA, Astra Zeneca, to name a few, all using python. The fact that > you arent comfortable with it is fine, but not a reason to reject it. Thats moving the goalpost. Naturally there are many experienced python developers. Let me re-state the point for your benefit; Having nothing but python bindings and having practically all your components written in python is without a doubt very realistically limiting the amount of people you can get hacking on Qubes. Add on top of that the content matter, which is highly complex and in many cases includes networking or cross-VM communication or hard-core linux components and you limit the amount of people even more, to the extend I mentioned above. -- Tom Zander Blog: https://zander.github.io Vlog: https://vimeo.com/channels/tomscryptochannel -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
