Why would I learn Python over other languages?

Okay, here's what I know so far about Python:
It's an object-oriented scripting language, supported on many platforms.

Now here are my questions:
It is easy to learn?
Does it support GUI programming?
Does it support server-side programming, say for web apps?
Does it have extensions and libraries, say for DB connectivity, serial com 
or network programming...?
Can it be used for administrative tasks, say as perl...?
Also, can it be compiled to native code?

Also much appreciated would be simple comparisons with say JAVA (my other 
candidate), and pointers to sites and docs where to start.

Thank you in advance.
