    New Google Mail: Is it written in Python?


    Does anyone know if the new Google mail service is written in Python. Also, is the AOL online mail client written in Python? It has the extension .psp, so that could be Python serve pages, though I was under the impression that they ran AOLserver with TCL (.adp). Thanks.

    All I know is that Google uses Python is one way or another so I guess it could be possible (there is a quote from Google on the Python main page).

    yeh i think google said they use python cus it's very quick (in development and at runtime), so it's easy to make quick changes to the system etc. this is why i am gonna learn python(i was originally learning C)
