[Tutor] Hello from a beginner!

I'm completely new to this list (and Python) so I just wanted to say hello 
and introduce myself. 

I have a lot of experience with Perl, but I've been hearing enough good 
stuff about Python that it seems like I'm overdue time to pick it up.  My 
early readings (from O'Reilly's LEARNING PYTHON) lead me to believe that 
it should be an excellent language for GUI apps, scientific computing, and 
cross-platform apps.  Along with reading the O'Reilly book, I hope this 
list will get me up to speed quickly.

Does anyone have an opinion on the MIGRATING FROM PERL TO PYTHON (or 
something like that;  has a snake on the cover) book out there?  I'm 
considering picking that one up.

Thanks, and I look forward to learning Python and participating in this
