Correct If I am wrong C programming language is the most powerful language, because it is lower level language, you can write code that talks directly to the kernel.. for instance you can write a business application and tailor up a specific operating system to it, seeing that Linux is based on C language, I mean you can write a Lean Linux operating system that the business application needs, no extra things on the OS that will run and the application does not need. I hope you got my point.

however I believe it is a very difficult language to learn.
I also am not aware if with C language, we can use it for web applications, or for applications that query databases (SQL,Oracle)…

Regarding Python, I am not aware if it is as powerful as C language, and if it is capable of achieving the tasks that I have indicated above that C language can do..

Thank you

I have downloaded python. the one thing I noticed (since I have used VB,Delphi in the past), I do not see a form where you drop objects on, then click to fire up an event procedure , for instance double_click

Does it function completely different than VB or Delphi ?

in VB or Delphi , you have Toolbox with all tools( message box,textbox,dropdown box, etc...) that you can put on a form, I am not sure if Python has a separate GUI tool that does the same thing.

I can try playing around with it when I get home. I've never used it, so I don't immediately know what the issue would be.
