[OCLUG-Tech] Linux apps?

Has anyone here written GUI applications for Linux?
I am interested in writing a relatively simple app to start with, prefereably in Python, maybe Perl if Python is too much work to get libs for.

- list the up/down status of a couple of web sites, 
- maybe something more complicated, maybe to list the unread emails available on a couple of accounts, 
- then a truly trivial graphical game, something  like "Hello Gamer rfinnius- you have pressed 11 keys since the app started".
     - Where rfinnius is your login name.

Also, is anyone familiar with doing those things with the Enlightenment libraries?
Is Python supported well in Enlightenment?
