Incorrect. If it doesn't work, it's because you're not believing hard enough.

Everyone loves programming in Python! You disagree? But it's the fastest growing, says Stack Overflow

Re: My thoughts on this ...

I hope my own personal efforts have contributed to this in some small way. Why? Well, because whenever I'm asked 'My lad/lass is interested in programmng, what language should they learn first?', I always answer : 'Python. It'll teach them good indenting habits.'

So far as I'm concerned, being a good n00b language is nothing to be ashamed of. I cut my teeth on PHP, but I wish it'd been Python.

Farewell Unity, you challenged desktop Linux. Oh well, here's Ubuntu 17.04

Re: My thoughts on this ...

I'm going in the opposite direction. I started out as a Windows-only teenager. Then moved to linux, and loved the simple UI of the Ubuntus (Unity was a jump, but I learned at least to tolerate it).

But the older I get, the more I like the CLI. I think it's because I have more demands on my time. So when I want to do something on my computer, I want to do PRECISELY that thing, right-the-heck-now. I don't want to be suggested at or wizarded.

I'm 32 and I don't have a house, still less a lawn, but if I did I'd be telling you damn kids to get off it. Fortunately, I live in the North, so there are always clouds to shout at.
