In any case, the OP should remember that programming languages are all 
theoretically the same: if you can do it in one language, then you can 
theoretically do it any other. When choosing a language, you just need 
to find one that (a) has the right tools to do the job (libraries, 
methods of deployment, supported platforms, etc.) and (b) that you and 
your team are comfortable using. Python has the tools to tackle a huge 
range of problems (you can often use the standard library when you would 
have to write C code from scratch), and many find it, dare I say, fun to 
use (whereas I find C# roughly equivalent to being shot). Whether you 
should use it depends on your domain and your team's preference.
