As Mikhail noted, if you want to compare programming languages, you'll
find Python which has this exact same policy. 

Both philosophies also exist in desktop environments, and it's good this
way. Each one has advantages the other can't compete with.

For programming languages, I prefer the one that makes programmers
easily understand all code written by others. For desktop environments,
I prefer the one that provides the cleanest and most efficient UI. YMMV.
