Guido did not create Python!

Well, you and me know that the title of this post is not true, but that is not what Mark Joseph Edwards would have us believe, given a chance.

I am not sure how many Pythonistas read Windows IT Pro, but I won't suggest it to someone who is new to Python, for reasons that are very clear. :-)
