Most do.

Debian is clean and powerful but perhaps not suited well for complete 
novices. So I would recommend a Debian-based distribution like "Ubuntu" to 
you. It will not bother you with all the gears and give you a working 
desktop environment which - of course - includes Python. If you like KDE 
over Gnome (I do) you can use "Kubuntu". If you haven't heard of Gnome or 
KDE yet... just try Ubuntu.
