Before reading this article, please read this one first:

why python is popular?

From a nice article [2], we have some top theories.

Here are the top theories:[2]

It’s the GIL (Global Interpreter Lock)

It’s because its interpreted and not compiled

It’s because its a dynamically typed language

I will try to clean up my mind and write it up if I have time later. I feel answers to questions should be concise. And concise answers build upon deep understanding. The references helped me a lot and hope it will help the readers also.

Thanks for reading.
