Can Python code launch applications?


Recently i started using freevo and liked it so much i have started to learn Python

but i'd rather learn another language if i can't launch a different application (eg KDE based Amarok Kaffeine)

Does Freevo have a core application written in a different language that Launches the Music player and xine specified in Python?

any common scripting language can do this, it's a pretty core thing for a script to be able to do.... check os.fork or os.exec or os.execvp as each function suits you best
