You should also be aware that the integration betwen Python and Windows is
so strong, thanks in large part to Mark Hammond, that you can quite easily
write programs in Python and have them communicate with GUI fornt ends
written in VB. "Programming Python on Win32", by Mark Hammond and Andy
Robinson, has some great integration examples in it.

Get stuck in. The more you do, the more you'll like Python.
