Again, it wasn't a word about is it good or bad. I'd just note about the
difference. Python - (socket/FNORB/ILU/rpc) , Erlang -
(socket/CORBA/rpc/transparent distribution). And can I remind one more
time, in the Python __only__ socket are part of the standard library
(let assume the host platform supports sockets), in Erlang all these
ways are more well integrated. Thats it.
