More easily than basic, I'd bet. Or at least they would benefit
much more from learning python than learning basic. I'm a
software engineer, and it took me quite a while to unlearn the
bad habits encouraged by basic. :)

Yep, comes standard, and python is free and open and runs on
pretty much all OSes out there. Not just the ones from Redmond.
Python has become very popular in the scientific programming
community, in no small part due to a company called Enthought
here in Austin (http://enthought.com/) which has created many
powerful free tools.
Ruby (http://www.ruby-lang.org/) is another very nice modern
language worth checking out.
