Python is my favorite language and I recommend that you experiment with 
it.  However, if you want the quickest replacement for VB I would look 
at REALbasic.  It has a nice IDE with an integrated GUI designer and it 
is generally easy for a VBer to learn.  You can even convert existing VB 
apps as well.  It won a Jolt Productivity award this year (along with 
Python 2.4).
