My brother uses it for web development sometimes, but I don't do much in that area.

[*:17k0jmwp]a common (well known) and mature language to work with
[*:17k0jmwp]sometimes embedded in applications and used as scripting language
[*:17k0jmwp]batteries included (have very good and large standard library included in all installs)
[*:17k0jmwp]cross platform scripts/applications can be written
Just some examples. It is not meant to be a replacement for AutoHotkey.

The reason I use it less on Windows is it's less reliable. That is, it doesn't come pre-installed. When you just want to give someone a quick script, you have to worry about the 30mb dependency that is the Python interpreter. If I know I'm talking to someone on Linux, I know they already have it, and I don't need to worry.
In scripting, it makes all the difference. I use 2.7.2 mostly. A few of the performance improvements in 3.x really get in my way (like the use of iterators vs. lists).

I haven't tried seriously to code in Python yet, though.

Not to start a Bazaar v Git(Hub) discussion, but why did you choose Bazaar over Git or any other system (not interested in starting a technical discussion over which one is better) I just tried Bazaar and using it with the Explorer was quite easy and a nice experience.
Bazaar, my DVCS of choice
