I'm just now learning VB.NET for work.  I really, REALLY wanted to learn
Python, either at work or home, but I just don't have the time.  I am
grudgingly beginning to like VB.NET, not for the language, but for the
frigging RAD IDE.  If there were a Python equivalent available, even if it
only did a third of what Visual Studio.NET can do, I'd be learning Python
on my own instead.

My .02.
