I would be. I have wanted to learn Python for a while (great
alternative to be learning while I'm forced to learn java), and I have
a powerbook. The real question of course is how many meetings we would
have. There's really only so much perl and python people can talk
about while under the glare of the apple store.
At the Perl Mongers meeting yesterday, it was brought up that the
apple store wouldn't like non-apple computers there, so we would be
alienating a bunch of users in both groups.
Any website for your usergroup?
