David:  Experimenting, failing and succeeding is the life of a 
programmer.  I have been programming for many years in assemply, 
FORTRAN, COBOL, Basic, RPG, FoxPro, C, but I am now totally committed to 
Python.  It is the best of all worlds.  Coming from the Microsoft side, 
open source and Python creates a whole new set of problems.  Do I use 
Windows?  Do I use Linux?  Do I use my Mac Book Pro?  You do have to 
make some decisions before moving on.  The choices are endless.

I have found Dabo and Django to be beneficial for me because they target 
what I want to do.

Your mileage may vary.  ;^)
