Java "Although the .NET vs. Java war is basically over for control of the Windows desktop, where .NET is sure to become the managed language of choice for new Windows desktop applications, there is a new battle brewing. That battle is for the Linux desktop. Now that Java has been open sourced under the GPL, even the most strict of the 'free software only' distributions can start bundling it and integrating it into their Linux distributions out of the box."

As Ma_d already pointed out python is strongly typed. One point I would make is that a combination of unit testing and pyDoc gets rid of many of the "risks" that a non statically typed language may introduce.

Also python now has the option of using Windows Forms or Swing Via IronPython or Jython respectively
