Depends on what you mean by "crap". If you dislike Perl 4's syntax,
dynamic scoping, lack of OO gimmicks, or lack of general data structures,
you'll probably like Python very much.
If you think Perl 5 will fix most everything you don't like about Perl 4,
you'll probably hate Python very much.
And if you don't understand the above, you asked the wrong question <grin>.
