as a side note: there are at least 4 "major" python-the-language 

CPython (the classic "python", what you have on the slack, implemented in C)
Jython (implemented in java - http://www.jython.org/)
IronPython (implemented in c# - http://ironpython.net/)
PyPy (implemented in python - http://pypy.org/)

but the list is not exhaustive... on 
http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonImplementations you can find others
