Me too Chem, I was expecting to be writing a large script with loads of commands but the simplicity amazes me.
And, talking of Python, I'm trying to learn that too. When I was on Window$, I was wanting to learn a programming language but all I found was languages such as C+ and Visual Basic that costs hundreds of pounds - I didn't know of the free ones around as you expect everything to cost. Since moving to Ubuntu, it has really opened my eyes.
I have set myself a project in Python, when I can fully understand the commands. I am going to create an address book.
