comment I want to write a Todo list application for mac but I only have experience with C++
@Matt Bettinson - Most experienced programmers don't want to be forced to learn a new languade to accomplish a task in a language they already know. This is the reason I suggested Qt, but you can use any language that supports the features you need. For GUI apps, other widget kits you can use are wxWidgets, GTK+, and Tk, which are supported by many different languages (Perl, Python, Ruby, C/C++, etc.). Even Qt has bindings to other than C++: qt.nokia.com/products/programming-language-support.

comment Why freeware (closed-source) instead of open-source?
@Mason Wheeler - Nope, I agree with you, and have nothing against Delphi except the price. A lot of "rockstar developers" wouldn't agree with you, though. So... just some light-hearted humor on my part.

Ummm, did you just admit to using Delphi? :-) Here's my freeware pick... softintegration.com/products/chstandard

Can you say what the freeware tool is? Just curious.

comment Python vs. Java for embedded wireless module
I think your best choice is to choose the hardware that meets your needs, then choose a programming language for it. Java or Python may not even be options at that point.

comment How long would it take to learn Python?
@Josh - A lot of tutorials and quick intro books are really only teaching how to use the syntax of a language, with very simple examples used. The MIT courses are the courses being taught to enrolled MIT students, and IMO, that gives the them just a wee bit of street cred. As for SO... StackOverflow, a site for asking code-related programming questions.
