This is the legacy website for Python. It is no longer being updated. It will remain available until all content has been ported over to the new website which is available here.
Python runs on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, and has been ported to the Java and .NET virtual machines.
Python is free to use, even for commercial products, because of its OSI-approved open source license.
