I agree with you, but i just have one thing to add that may be of

Yesterday i started looking into python, it looks pretty damn sweet, i
now think Java is a python wannabe.

After a quick check, Python runs on just about every platform ive heard
of, on heaps of os's.

Python is an interpreted, oo scripting langage, it uses dynamic modules.

There are a heap of python apps (modules) that could be usefull for
there is a python-newt module i was playing with yesterday. There are is
also good networking modules (http), and gnome graphics modules etc.

Python could be a really good thing to build boot-floppies around, worth
consideration for the next-generation foppies.
