Two things, probably. First, it was almost always pre-installed even on
low-cost hosting. Second, you could start very simply because it was
designed to be used embedded. Tiny little bits of code could so
something -- not need for a "framework".
Other languages were not always installed (I'm sure it's better these
days) and those that were (Perl almost always was) could not, by
default, be used embedded -- you had to generate the whole page.
What is (or are) the Python way (or ways) to do it?
