To me it was already pretty disappointing to hear that Python is
moving to Git. Seeing it choose the proprietary platform is a sad
choice from my perspective. Two indications of a breakage in the
culture of the project. For me that’s a reason to leave Python.
It’s not like I did not get a foreboding of that. It’s why I started
learning Guile Scheme in 2013 — and wrote about the experience:
I will still use Python for many practical tasks — it acquired the
momentum for that, especially in science, and I think it will stay
strong for many years; a good language to start and a robust base for
Mercurial. But with what I learned the past years, Python is no longer
where I place my bets.
