Python is an exceedingly good programming language but not really the
thing for a complete newcomer to start with. I'd suggest you start with
one of the older versions of BASIC such as MBASIC, BASICA, or QBASIC (or
others of similar type, but not VisualBasic) which run under DOS. When
you get the hang of that with a few non-trivial programs, then come back
and have a look at Python.
