Brian M. Clapper does a nice job comparing Java and Python with specific cases and examples. He shows the places where he likes Python, and explains why.
I made a similar transition to Python, and it was nice to see a lot of my own discoveries in his list.
Brian manages to give a good summary without calling Java nasty names or badmouthing it’s devotees:
I’ve been a Java programmer for a long time, and I bear no ill will toward a language I happily used for many years. I’m just trying to capture why I find Python to be more fun.
