I made the jump from PHP to Python years ago and I do not miss PHP.

PHP is certainly easier to get a web application up-and-running with if you know nothing but beyond that it's a mess of a language that makes maintaining a clean code-base far more effort than it should be. It's basically scripted C for the Internet and not in a good way.

Which is not to say Python is the holy grail. There are a lot of things I don't like about Python, including some of the ones you mentioned (Non-trivial whitespace still annoys me) but on the whole it's a better language than PHP and the amount of libraries and support available is good.

At the end of the day, I'd rather be writing web applications in Python than PHP.

Comment: Google solved this already in Hangouts... (Score 1) 415

The latest version of Google Hangouts already solved this issue.

Next to the area that lets you enter text for your message is an icon that can be tapped to select whether or not you want to message to be sent via Hangouts or SMS. The problem here is that Apple are treating iMessage as being synonymous with SMS, something which is not actually the case in reality.

This change to Hangouts instantly made it more usable as an SMS application for me (All it's missing now is message search)

Buying, installing and playing a game with Steam is just easier than downloading it from some torrent tracker, applying a crack and then struggling to find cracked patches as time goes by.

I don't pirate PC games any more. I can afford to pay for them, I feel good about spending the money on them and I don't feel like I'm jumping through hoops to get what I want.

For me, Steam is good enough that I wish a similar solution was available for TV and Movies (Unfortunately, due to the various network and studio deals this will never happen but you can always dream...)

My music is also organised by folders, but Musicbrainz Picard does all the heavy lifting of sorting stuff into the right folders.

I use Amarok and do use the library feature most of the time but every now and then I drop back to folder view for certain albums that confuse Amarok (Age of Wonders 3 OST...)
