Response to: Python

The interactive environment now supported by ActiveState is perhaps the best reason to go with Python in the Windows environment. (Certainly it compares favorably with running perl -e from a prompt). The COM interface is very straightforward to use, and wxWindows makes it easy to put up a good-looking GUI.

I still find that I use Perl almost exclusively in the Unix environment, simply because I had several years of Perl experience before I ever took up Python.
