Sound, time and platform issues

I need advice and expertise of the community for the following problem.
I'm going to make a psycholinguistic experiment. In this experiment the
auditor is asked to listen to some text and to press the button when
some event occurs. I need to find out reaction time on different inputs
and, therefore, I need 1) rather accurate (or, at least, constantly
biased) estimates for the moment the button was pressed, and 2)
"real-time" sound playing.
Googling finds out several Python toolkits for dealing with sound, but
they are for Linux, not Windows.
1. Does anybody know about Python tools that might help to solve the
problem above for Windows?
2. Is there any C/C++ solution? (in this case I might provide Python
3. If there is no Windows solution, what is the simplest way to use
Linux? I have a notebook and rather limited knowledge of Linux. I don't
want to install Linux on the notebook---harddrive is somewhat limited.
However, I heard that there are some variants of *nix that needs only
boot-CD. Does anybody have experience with systems like these?
Sorry for a bunch of questions and thank you in advance.
With best regards,
