Looking at the list of sites created using django, it seems there are no major web sites that are written using the framework.
Why is this? Is django not suited to scalable web sites, or is it in fact that Python loses out to PHP because more developers know it or there are more OSS components available while enterprise favours .NET or Java?
How suitable is Python compared to PHP for instance? I saw some benchmarks recently that put Python way faster than PHP.
I'm looking for answers a little more in-depth than "anything can be made to work/use what you know" etc please.

Thanks for the answers everyone.
