Anyway, I just discovered Perl is included in Python. Which programming languages are supported out-of-the-box?
Python, Perl, Java, what else?
Looks very nice.Use Quickly to build your first Ubuntu app. It's easy.
We recommend using PyGTK to create applications for Ubuntu. We have created a tool called Quickly which gets you up and running with PyGTK and all the tools you need right away.

While Ubuntu and the applications that come with Ubuntu are written in many different languages, from C to Java to Haskell, when writing something new we recommend using Python. Many important parts of Ubuntu are already written directly in Python, and we work to make every important API and framework within Ubuntu available from Python. Python includes a rich standard library and a vast set of third party modules, so there are libraries available for just about everything you can think of.

Actually, I *love* the fact that Python enforces proper indentation for readability -- wish that all languages would have done that!
