Dear colleagues,

 Mr. Alfonso Reyes commented another day about the educational side
of Jython. He also sent nice functional samples, like the embedded
database Derby, Array and Swing code.  Remember he told something
like:
 
"Can“t imagine another OO language to teach kids to program"

  Why Jython isn“t yet part of the OLPC $100 laptop project? Is there a
better language around, talking about clean syntax design (=Python),
fully interpreted mode, web 2.0 capabilities (RSS & podcasts) combined
with the power of Java SE 6 language? In summary, Jython delivers nice
features to build a zero cost, educational IT platform under Linux.

thinking ..

Regards,
Claude
