You don't have to choose either. There's a plenty of window managers. Most
well known are WindowMaker, Enlightenment, blackbox, icewm.
The idea behind both gnome and kde is to have an integrated environment
like windows so that it's easy for newbies to switch. The tradeoff is that
they're slower and take more memory.
As far as python's concerned, you can run anything.
