Yes, anaconda is written in Python, and there is plenty of Python in
various corners of Red Hat (I've been working at Red Hat for a little
under a year now).  But at least in my corner of Red Hat there is
quite a bias in favor of Java.  I shouldn't complain too much since it
is my Java background that got me my job here, but I am trying to move
some of the people around me to more productive languages  -- maybe
even Jython once we get a final out :).

And yes it seems that Python is becoming the language of choice for
many distros (I know Gentoo also uses it heavily).  I should have
started my list with "here are a couple of them that I have seen: the
whole list is too huge to even begin to catalog...)
