Python is a powerful and easy to use language. That's what I've heard. It has the advantage of not being C++, so that's something. My understanding is that while it's a great language, it's not widely used, so of little utility if you're programming for a job. But it's great for just dicking around on your computer.
Again, that's what I've heard. I have never used Python. C# & AHK 4 LIFE!!!
