Uhm, I don't think so - or at least not most commonly so ... and
so thinketh some relevant resources:
... and before 2006 we have, e.g.:
... I don't see anything lookin' like Python within the top 10 ...
dang - doesn't show me the number of "hits" (matches) with the time filter,
... but >=10 pages of results (at about 10 per page) ...
if I further restrict that to "pi day" (AND) python, we have ...
well, 5 pages of results, so <~=50 "hits" ...
if I go back to just "pi day" and the time restriction,
see how many pages total ... 14, so <~=140 "hits".
So, pre-Raspberry Pi, "Pi Day" better known for
$ echo 'scale=60; 4*a(1)' | bc -l | sed -e 's/^\(.*\)[0-4]....*$/\1.../'
than Python ... though, perhaps in contexts of Linux ...
not particularly about equal on the search results for
date restriction (<2006) "pi day" linux
(AND) python or -python
