Python 2 was released in October 2000, but Python 1 was released to the world six years earlier, in 1994 - much like my younger brother. I have an inkling that, also much like my younger brother, it would have been wrought with idiosyncrasies and quirks that would take at least solid decade to iron out (sorry Jonah, you're a cool guy).
I am not planning to use any ancient Python myself, this is a historical curiosity post. What are your war stories? Put your nineties hats on!
