Not only can Python be used to do pretty much everything you want, it
can help you do it in a more flexible fashion and in a much shorter time
than most other languages.  It is certainly far better suited to large
application development than other languages traditionally used for this
task.

For an excellent cross-platform GUI kit, check out wxPython:

I'd highly recommend downloading Python and wxPython, then giving the
wxPython demo a try.  You'll be pleased.
