cool if you do plzz tell me i wanna learn it all lol

you can do the same things basically on any platform. that's one of the really cool things about python is that code written on one platform can usually just be brought over to another platform and used without any changes.

Yes, we all agree Pythons an amazing language . But tell us what you want to with it and we'll see what we can do to help i.e. heres an example that splits a string and loops though it's elements
>>> someString = 'Welcome to the Python community Steve!'
'Welcome to the Python community Steve!'
>>> someStringList = someString.split()
['Welcome', 'to', 'the', 'Python', 'community', 'Steve!']
>>> for eachElement in someStringList: print eachElement,
Welcome to the Python community Steve!
>>> for eachElement in someStringList: print eachElement

A simple Guess-The-Number game:
unknown = random.randint(1, 100)
user_guess = 0
while not user_guess == unknown:
user_guess = input("Guess the number between 1 and 100: ")
if user_guess < unknown:
print "Too low!"
elif user_guess == unknown:
print "Too High!"
