IMO Python is fine for relatively quick prototyping, but not for the serious data processing. High cost of function calls and quick stack overflow if you use recursion are the main problems I have with Python. It's just much slower than C++ or Java. Try to write recursive depth-search in Python and in C++, it is very educational.

Haven't used R yet, so no opinion there...
