You (or maybe the Java folks) seem to have missed that platform has a 
rather specific meaning in computing:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platform_(computing)

Given that definition, Python is pretty much a platform in itself.  If 
you want to use Python for a specific task, you add libraries for that 
task.  Tell us what you want to do, and we'll tell you what libraries 
and toolkits you might want to try.
