Having fun with projects on the Raspberry Pi would be so easy if I could overcome my dislike, in all probability based on my misperceptions, of Python. When it comes to Raspberry Pi, Python sits at the top table whereas Ruby wouldn't even get the crumbs of the floor if it wasn't for Sonic Pi.
I still have a belief, may be an irrational one, that it is easier for young kids to learn Ruby than Python. However, I know for a fact that it is a infinitely easier for them to use Python in Raspberry Pi projects.
Update: I still am finding Python difficult to like.
