I had the same experience when I switched to Linux. I am not sure what I
did with computers before Linux, really, though my experience started at
a much later age.

I hear Python is a good choice -- we recently had a Python tutorial
given by Lars Wirzenius. I expect he'll post a summary pretty soon.
There are also lots of scripts in Debian (I'm thinking of the ones that
run the archive in particular) which are written in Python, so it'll
definitely serve you well in the future!
