🤔 odd, but that's one of the few things I love about it.

Well it probably depends on whether you like python :D

Personally I don't like it at all, but that's a rant for another day.

Guess so. You don't have to like it. But judging from its popularity a lot of is love it. I'm particularly fond of the way a Python app generally remains open source by its nature and even live in operation permits relatively simple debugging and even dynamic patching etc. If performance is not the defining need, then there are fairly popular advantages to a widely documented, supported, portable language... of course it makes little sense if you need to extract peak processor performance from a given system. Then there are indisputably better choices.
