Sometimes I'm embarrassed by how little Python I know, arguably the most popular programming language.
Why is that awful language so appealing? Having indentation be part of the syntax is one of the worst decisions made in history. And the biggest one by far is you can't verify your syntax is correct without running the code. Even Lua errors out on obviously wrong syntax.
@lynne honestly the fact that you latch onto the syntax as your chief complaint says a lot here
You need to unlearn your desire to bikeshed and maybe you'll uncover the real problems with Python, which are numerous
@lynne I don't think the syntax itself is the problem, not even the GIL. Personally I think it's how the only real implementation is CPython because how it's standard is so entangled with CPython implementation
