Most of your questions are answered on python.org. May I suggest that
you start there ?
* "mastering" a language takes years, whatever the language.
* the first step is of course learning the language !-)
* given your background, I'd suggest first the official Python
tutorial, then diveintopython. Reading this ng might help too.
* Yes, Python is (mostly) platform-independent - at least as long a
you don't use platform-dependent modules
* An average programmer may become productive with Python in a matter
of days - but really taking advantage of Python's power is another story.
If you like programming, chances are you'll enjoy Python. So welcome on
